What exactly are hierarchical condition categories (HCCs)?

HCCs are captured over the span of a year by documenting the highest disease categories for a patient’s conditions. HCC data is used to calculate risk- adjustment factor (RAF) scores across the continuum of care. Both HCCs and RAF scores ultimately determine how accurate reimbursement is in the world of value-based care.

Successfully managing HCCs requires the understanding and practice of complete documentation and coding. Does your current documentation reflect accurate risk scores for your patient population?
