New Presentation on HCC University
There is a new presentation and quiz on HCCUniversity.com,
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: http://www.hccuniversity.com/hcc-university/training-presentations/2014-cms-hcc-model/
If you are interested in having a webinar training session
