What is the cutoff time for RAPS and EDS submission deadlines?


All risk adjustment data (Risk Adjustment Processing System Data and Encounter Data System Data) that will be included in risk score runs need to be submitted by 8pm ET of the deadline for submission date that is relevant to the specific risk score run.  For example, for the payment year 2019 final risk score run, the deadline for submission was January 31, 2020 and all risk adjustment data should have been submitted by 8:00 PM ET on January 31, 2020.  The deadlines for the risk score runs are announced via Health Plan Management System (HPMS) memo on a periodic basis.
