A Focus on Specific HCC Coding Problems

for Physicians/NPs/PAs

             Presented by: Karen Scott, MEd, RHIA, CCS-P, CPC, FAHIMA

As healthcare spending steadily increases, the effort to predict the cost of care for your patients is becoming more important and figures heavily in value-based contracting, not only for Medicare plans where this began, but also for an increasing number of commercial contracts.

***This narrow program will focus on specific ways that you can affect your risk  adjustment/cost evaluations based on data from our own CIN Trilogy claims. ***

Karen will address:

  • The important role of combination codes in diabetes and CVD
  • Non-specific phrases/codes to be avoided, if at all possible
  • Pitfalls in documentation that prevent accurate coding and how you can monitor on your own

Date:               Tuesday, December 3, 2019

           

Time:               6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Location:        MetroCare Education Room
