The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Hierarchical Condition Category coding (HCC) risk adjustment model is used to calculate risk scores. Nowadays, HCC coding seems to be everywhere we turn, despite being around for almost two decades. Why?
Few providers are aware of this risk adjustment model, despite having emerged under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act several years ago. This risk adjustment model ensures that premiums are sufficient for patients who require more resources than the average Medicare patient.
Beginning HCC coders need a firm understanding of HCC coding to capture chronic conditions, and accurately map codes to ensure your organization receives correct reimbursement for the cost of care. Now is the time to get a fundamental understanding of HCCs and implement it in your own practice. If your organization is still learning, it's not too late to start.
