Hierarchical condition category (HCC) coding is a risk-adjustment model that is becoming increasingly prevalent as the environment shifts to value-based payment models. Join us to review the background on HCCs, a comparison between the CMS-HCC and the HHS-HCC models, and application of the M.E.A.T. (Monitor, Evaluate, Assess, Treat) criteria for documentation and coding practices.

You will receive one AHIMA CEU in Revenue Cycle Management when you attend this webinar.*

Sharpen your understanding of HCC coding.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Overview of HCCs and background
  • Differences between CMS-HCC vs. HHS-HCC
  • Deep dive on CMS-HCC (examples, hierarchy, insights)
  • Discussion of ME.A.T. criteria: how to apply it for documentation and coding practices
  • Resources on HCCs
