Medicare Risk Adjustment – HCC Coding

The Medicare Risk Adjustment (HCC Coding) course is designed to introduce students to the concept of insurance companies receiving funds based on Hierarchal Conditions Codes (HCC). Sicker patients or patients with chronic disease will have higher healthcare costs associated with their care.  Medicare has developed a system that will reimburse health plans and providers additional amounts for caring for patients who may require more services.
