The key to higher RAF Scores is Documentation and recurrent visits. The physician really needs to see each patient with Chronic conditions every 6 months as RAF scores are re-calculated in Jna and July.
The documentation has to be very specific and then of course, you need to code to that same specficity. Another thing that has helped our Docs is if your Medicare Advantage plan has a portal with past conditions reported, print that sheet out, put it on top of the patient chart for each visit. This lets them know it is a Medicare Advantage member, to document better and also reminds them of all the chronic conditions he/she should address for each visit to ensure they are reported for each calculation period.
I hope this helps.
