In the alphabet soup of healthcare IT, some acronyms matter more than others. When it comes to reimbursements, the importance of HCCs – Hierarchical Condition Categories – cannot be overstated.
HCC codes lie at the heart of a payment methodology used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to determine capitated payments for Medicare Advantage and other Medicare programs. These codes allow payments to be risk-adjusted based on patient complexity, leading to increased payments for high-risk patients.
For providers, the implications are clear – the ability to document with greater specificity and precision can dramatically impact payments. Which begs the question: do your reimbursements truly reflect the work being done at the point of care?
