HCC Coding and Documentation: A Doctors View
"I don't need to know about Medicare Part C and HCC coding, it doesn't affect me." This might have been true at one point but now both Medicare and Medicare Part C are dependent on HCC rules and regulations. More than 1 in 4 Medicare patients nationally and 1 in 3 in many states are in the Medicare Part C model. Coders (and some doctors) must know part A and B rules and now it is just as important to be aware of Part C. This is the diagnosis-dependent capitated model that has doubled its enrollment in only the past few years.
You Will Learn:
- Basics of the Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) model and how it impacts all physician offices
- Documentation requirements for diagnoses - requested for auditing purposes
- How the EMR changes the type of documentation that can be used and where it can be found
- Documentation tips that meet Medicare requirements, which can be taught to physicians to create a less intrusive work flow
- Strategies for "refreshing" the diagnoses on a yearly basis, a must for success in the model
