SOAP Notes/Health Assessments for 2019 calendar year are due February 15th
Anthem Commercial Risk Adjustment (CRA) contracts with Inovalon -- an independent company that provides secure, clinical documentation services -- to help us comply with provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that require us to assess members’ relative health risk level and report to CMS on those conditions. Your offices have been receiving Inovalon SOAP (Subjective; Objective; Assessment; and Plan – these are health assessments) packets all year long as part of our risk adjustment cycle, asking for the physicians’ help with completing health assessments for some of their patients who are our members.
Incentives for submitting SOAP’s/Health Assessments
SOAPs submitted as paper are eligible for a $50 incentive; SOAPs submitted electronically through Inovalon’s ePASS system are eligible for a $100 incentive.
Submission Deadline and Important Reminder
While the dates of service for the patient visits must have been by December 31, 2019, the SOAP notes/Health Assessments can be submitted up until February 15, 2020. We will still pay the incentive payments for these submissions through February 15, 2020.
