Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs) are becoming increasingly important as organizations use risk-adjusted models to determine reimbursement. This webinar will review the HCCs and the role they play in risk-adjusted payment models. Learn how clinical documentation impacts coding and the resulting HCC assignment, and review best practices for assigning and sequencing or querying for appropriate diagnosis codes. You will receive one AHIMA CEU in Performance Improvement when you attend this webinar.*

Learn how HCC assignment impacts the coding process.


Topics to be covered include:

  • Reviewing HCCs and their role in risk-adjusted payment methodologies
  • Learning how documentation specificity impacts coding and the use of HCCs
  • Understanding how HCCs impact coding and reimbursement
