New Presentation on HCC University

There is a new presentation and quiz on, with a corresponding quiz that you may be interested in.  The presentation covers changes to the CMS-HCC model, including things like the addition of Morbid obesity, and fibrotic lung diseases.  It also covers the deletion of previously included codes, like CKD stages I-III and polyneuropathy.  There are documentation tips for some of the new procedure codes, as well as some lessons learned from the last CMS Risk Adjustment Data Validation Study.  Finally,  there is a quiz, to help you test your knowledge of the new model and the common documentation errors that physicians encounter.  We urge you to share this  presentation and quiz with everyone involved in risk adjustment in your organization, especially physicians and physician extenders who may benefit from the documentation tips.  You can review the presentation at:
