Certificate program in HCC Coding training will help you how to read a medical chart and assign the correct diagnosis (ICD-10-CM) codes for a wide variety of clinical cases and services for risk adjustment models (e.g., hierarchical condition categories (HCCs), Chronic Illness & Disability Payment System (CDPS), and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) risk adjustment).
The greater the patient's disease burden, the higher the patient’s risk adjustment score; if the patient is healthy, the risk adjustment score is lower. A patient’s health status reflects the costs of their healthcare needs. The training will ensure that the provider documentation is up-to-par for HCC coding and that disease processes are coded accurately to follow risk adjustment models.
Invest in your future with the HCC training and earn CRC credential — certified coders earn 40 per cent more than non-credentialed/certified coders.
Because HCC coding for risk adjustment requires medical coders to help providers document all chronic disease processes and manifestations in the patient's medical record thoroughly, HCC coders must have a clear understanding of guidelines, regulations, diagnosis coding, and risk adjustment. According to AAPC's 2019 Salary Survey, medical coding professionals earn an average of 2.25 to 4.25 lakhs per year for freshers. Those with the CRC credential and experience, however, raise their earning potential to increase 20% to 40% annually, which makes risk adjustment coding a great area to get into.
