The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) developed the Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) model; a risk-adjustment model used to calculate risk scores to adjust capitated payments made for aged and disabled beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Advantage (MA) plans and certain demonstrations.


This presentation will provide an in-depth review of the HCC risk adjustment model and will include information to enhance the participant’s understanding of the model. Resources will also be reviewed that can be utilized to help professionals design an internal program to ensure the completeness, accuracy, and integrity of the HCC data collection, reporting, and auditing. In addition to the HCC model, this presentation will also provide a review of the CMS Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) audits on patients' medical records, including objectives, processes, impacts, and available appeal processes.
