Better Medicare Alliance Statement on Medicare Advantage RADV Final Rule

WASHINGTON – Better Medicare Alliance, a diverse coalition of health care stakeholders that support Medicare Advantage, issued the following statement regarding the Medicare Advantage Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) final rule released today by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):

“While our review of the rule is ongoing, we are focused on the potential unintended consequence of creating an environment of higher premiums and fewer benefits for the more than 29 million seniors and people with disabilities who choose Medicare Advantage,” said Mary Beth Donahue, President and CEO of the Better Medicare Alliance. We encourage CMS to work with stakeholders to put in place solutions that are transparent and fair to preserve stability for beneficiaries.”


Better Medicare Alliance is a community of over one million grassroots beneficiaries and two hundred ally organizations working to improve health care through a strong Medicare Advantage. Learn more at
