Medicare Data Validation (MDV) Pre-Assessment Consulting

Advent helps Part C and Part D plans assess readiness and prepare for MDV to achieve the best results in the annual audit.

Get MDV audit-ready

Early preparation is one of the main keys to achieving a successful Medicare Data Validation (MDV) audit.

Advent will provide MDV Pre-Assessment consulting services for any plan that does not currently utilize us as their DV auditor. We leverage our foundational experience auditing DV submissions to help ensure your organization is ready prior to the annual CMS Data Validation (DV) cycle.

Before you undergo a DV audit, Advent’s team of technical experts will help you:

  • Align your organization with changes to CMS reporting standards and technical specifications for the upcoming contract year, with a special focus on the two CMS Star Ratings measures – Medication Management Therapy Program (MTMP) and Special Needs Plan (SNP) Care Management
  • Identify issues with processes, procedures and information systems used to store, compile and report Part C and Part D data
  • Develop action plans to correct deficiencies in internal data, systems and reporting processes prior to the required annual audit
  • Confidently proceed with your annual DV audit and achieve the best outcome

We’re building on a proud legacy of innovation

We’ve built our business by anticipating changes in how health plan performance is measured and validated, and by leveraging our deep expertise to deliver customized audit and consulting solutions that help clients meet emerging reporting challenges.

For example, in 2011 Advent served as one of the founding audit firms to conduct CMS MDV audits and in 2014 we were among the first organizations to offer Initial Validation Audit (IVA) services as mandated by the Affordable Care Act in 2012.

Our growing MDV Pre-Assessment consulting service is yet another example of how Advent continues to innovate and help health plans achieve business-critical performance goals.
