The Health Risk Assessment (HRA) incentive is retiring on Jan. 1, 2024

The Healthy Michigan Plan’s (HMP) Health Risk Assessment (HRA) incentive is retiring. Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, HRA completion will no longer be incentivized for our HMP members.

This only affects our HMP members. HRA completion for D-SNP members is still required.

Why is this incentive retiring?

The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) will no longer require providers to complete an HRA for their patients effective Jan. 1, 2024.

Can I still complete and submit an HRA?

We encourage you to continue to complete and submit HRAs for your patients. The data we receive informs how we coordinate services available to our members, including identifying barriers to care, food and housing.

You can continue to submit HRAs using the following methods:

Via the Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System (CHAMPS)

  • Fax it to us directly at 616.942.0616.
  • Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, the state fax line will no longer accept HRAs.

Will I still receive an incentive payment for HRAs completed in 2023?

Yes, incentive payments for HRAs completed through Dec. 31, 2023 will be paid according to the payment schedule below.

 HRA completion dates Submission deadline Payment payout
July 1 - September 30 October 30, 2023 December 1, 2023
October 1 - December 31 January 30, 2024 March 1, 2024

Thank you for your participation in this work and your commitment to the care and wellbeing of your patients, our members.
