Understanding HCCs

Today, ICD-10-CM coding is ever-evolving and complex. e4health strives to simplify complicated coding methods by providing a thorough understanding of Risk Adjustment and Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs).

Diagnoses have an increasing role in reimbursement. The Risk Adjustment (RA) payment model is based on the assignment of diagnoses to disease groups known as HCCs. HCCs capture the severity of illnesses as well as acute and chronic conditions for patients. Risk scores associated with HCCs are tied to reimbursement and based on documented diagnoses.

Risk Adjustment in Healthcare

Risk Adjustment is associated with Medicare Advantage plans (CMS HCC), Medicare Part D (prescription coverage), the health insurance marketplace under the Affordable Care Act (HHS HCC), and Medicaid managed plans. Current projections predict that up to 40% of Medicare beneficiaries will be in Medicare Advantage plans in the early 2020s and up to 50% by 2025. As the healthcare industry’s reimbursement methodology continues to transition from a “fee-for-service” model to “value-based” care, risk adjustment is more important than ever.

Unparalleled Risk Adjustment and HCC Auditing Expertise

Boasting years of experience and the successful review of thousands of records, our credentialed HCC coders and auditors maintain exceptional accuracy and deliver meticulous work. With  our proprietary data analytics tool, we identify potential losses and gains and highlight missed opportunities. We then conduct education sessions that determine pitfalls, patterns, and trends that can lead to optimized RAF (Risk Adjustment Factor) scores.
