This presentation is intended to enhance the audience's level of understanding of Medicare's risk-adjustment payment model and will include detailed instructions for accessing information related to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) developed Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) model. A walk-through of a patient's care, diagnoses, and assigned HCCs over the course of a year will be reviewed and will demonstrate how relevant HCCs are assigned, how they change the patient's risk score over the course of that year, and the resulting reimbursement impact.
At the conclusion of the program, participants will understand:
- How to access and understand the various Medicare Advantage Risk-Adjustment documents and resources made available online
- How the patient's CMS-HCCs can change or be over-ridden from one encounter to the next over the course of a year
- How those changes impact the risk-score and reimbursement
