Auditing HCCs: Driving Compliance and Revenue Integrity

Ensuring comprehensive clinical documentation and obtaining the key elements will help improve coding accuracy, reduce denials and obtain revenue integrity.
Audits of Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs) have been performed for years as a way for Part C vendors (Medicare Advantage Organizations) to support their data submission for chronic condition category revenue. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) has been focusing on HCC compliance for several years now and continues with the 2020 Work Plan.

CMS estimates that 9.5 percent of payments to MA (Medicare Advantage) organizations are improper, mainly due to unsupported diagnoses submitted by MA organizations. Auditing HCCs takes an astute knowledge of documentation and coding guidelines and regulations. Knowing the problematic diagnosis can assist in your auditing efforts and meeting compliance.

Join the renowned coding and compliance expert, Gloryanne Bryant, to review and understand the key aspects of auditing HCC and obtaining compliance.
