Learn about the Medicare Risk Adjustment model, including Risk Adjustment Factor (RAF) scores and Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC), how provider documentation and coding of certain conditions affects the perceived severity of illness of your patients, and your overall rating as a healthcare provider or institution. Explore the proper documentation and coding of several common risk-adjusting diagnoses that present a challenge to providers today either because of existing incorrect documentation habits, differences between clinical and coding language, or increased specificity requirements for ICD-10-CM coding.
