ICD-10-CM for HCC

In 1997 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandated a payment model called Risk Adjustment and Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC). HCC was implemented in 2003. The model assigns a risk factor score to individuals determined to have a serious or chronic illness based on the individuals health conditions and demographics. Health conditions of an individual are determined by International Classification of Diseases – 10 (ICD –10) diagnoses submitted by providers on incoming claims. More than 9,000 ICD-10 codes map to 79 HCC codes in the Risk Adjustment model.

This online interactive course goes through the reasons for changes to quantity based payments and how chronic conditions can drive up healthcare costs in todays environment. In this 8 hour training we go over chronic conditions covered in the HCC program and the ICD-10-CM codes that apply.
