Webinar “The Pitfalls of HCC Coding” Thursday, December 8, 2022 at 1pm Eastern - Make Your Revenue Smarter

Though HCCs were first introduced nearly 20 years ago in 2004 it is only recently that real importance has been placed on HCC Coding. HCC codes are used to establish patient-specific payments for the following year by CMS. It is critical that these codes are captured year-round; if we miss or incorrectly capture these codes, our revenue cycle can be seriously impacted, causing payments to be delayed or even decreased. In the outpatient world specifically, reimbursements have become more and more dependent upon effective capturing of diagnoses codes, and HCC coding has become increasingly important. However there has been a gap in education for many coders when it comes to the ins and outs of coding HCCs. This has lead to some common pitfalls.
