Risk adjustment and Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) coding payment models are becoming more widely used in healthcare revenue cycle management, so it’s vital that these models are used correctly. Ensuring accurate and thorough care plan documentation provides payers a more complete view of a patient’s required scope of care—and with proper documentation, more revenue can be dedicated to that care. Improper or incomplete documentation of the patient’s existing conditions greatly affects practice reimbursement rates.

During this webinar, participants will learn how to properly use risk adjustment and HCC payment models to increase their practice’s revenue. Join expert speaker Brenda Edwards, CPC, CDEO, CPB, CPMA, CPC-I, CEMC, CRC, as she teaches participants how to apply new coding methodologies to increase revenue. Attendees will also learn how to spot documentation gaps and avoid payer denials. Finally, Edwards will explain how to further secure revenue by training doctors to create thorough documentation that captures treatment necessity for the patient’s care plan and prevents payer audits.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Apply new coding methods
  • Understand HCC applications
  • Obtain knowledge of future payment methods
  • Learn how to prepare for the new payment methodologies starting NOW
  • Become familiar with correct documentation guidelines
  • Have a better grasp of the impact inaccurate coding will have on your practice, as driven by audit results

Agenda:

  • Understand the importance of the relationship between risk adjustment codes and medical documentation
  • Learn how current coding will impact future reimbursement
  • Discuss how to assist providers in documenting to capture patient acuity
  • Learn proper documentation to capture the complete story of the patient
