Level of Program:

The demands of risk-adjustment coding are complex, and failure to comply can be costly. In the face of rapidly changing government and payer regulations, medical practices in all specialties must understand how to connect chronic conditions to accurately report a patient's disease burden. Failure to capture the correct risk via ICD-10 diagnosis codes means practices are losing money and not coding compliantly.

Join us for this one-hour webinar as we review current coding requirements and navigate real-life examples to help you stay compliant on common conditions—including arthritis, asthma, COPD, dementia, heart disease, and kidney disease—and gain the revenue you deserve.

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

  • Understand the challenges risk adjustment brings to specificity of ICD-10-CM coding
  • Be familiar with acceptable providers, place of service, and sources of documentation
  • Conquer the “problem list” challenge to ensure your patient’s history is correctly coded under risk-adjustment standards


  • Learn how to gain the revenue you deserve by correctly coding your patients’ complex conditions
  • Learn key clinical documentation guidance to improve the specificity of conditions you report
  • Understand how to connect conditions to boost compliance
  • Review specific conditions and key documentation points for the most common conditions you’ll face—regardless of specialty
  • Condition spotlight: Focus on common conditions such as arthritis, asthma, COPD, dementia, heart disease, kidney disease and more
