They give healthcare providers information about a patient’s self-perceived health and living situation while also providing individuals in the population an assessment of their risks for chronic diseases. In addition to asking questions about Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure, and lifestyle habits such as smoking and exercise, HRAs for the Medicare population must also factor in additional requirements.
