  1. In the first list on page “Lists – 12” of the study manual and in notecard #39, the 10th risk listed should say “environmental risk”
  2. The Fall 2018 syllabus originally said all of “chapter 4” was on the syllabus. But in August the SOA changed to just pages 35-69, excluding 4.2.4, which is what it was last season. So the following can be deleted:
    • From the study manual outline: the subsection “5. Drug classification system: Prescription drug categories” on page 177 (up to “6. Selecting drug-diagnosis pairs for a hybrid model” on page 178) as well as the section “High-risk enrollee pooling in HHS risk adjustment” on page 181 and all following sections for that study note.
    • From the study manual lists: The list of “Principles followed when creating the Prescription Drug Categories classification system” on page 50
    • From the notecards: notecard #178
  3. An errata has been released for the new Duncan textbook: Duncan errata. As a result, the following should be changed in the MATE study materials:
    • In the study manual outline: on page 155, line 5)c), swap the phrases “high-risk” and “low-risk”
    • In the study manual lists: on page 43, in the last paragraph, swap the phrases “high-risk” and “low-risk”
    • In the notecards: on notecard #153, in the 3rd point, swap the phrases “high-risk” and “low-risk”
  4. In the study manual, on page “Outline – 122,” on line 8.c)i), the last negative sign should be a plus sign. The formula should read: ACt = (AdjFSt – FSt-1) + [(IBVt + RCt) – (IBVt-1 + RCt-1)]
