Xact Medical Coding & Auditing for Quality and Risk Adjustment: The New HCC Measure for Payment in the Outpatient Setting
August 6th-September 17th Tuesdays 6pm-9pm
The healthcare landscape in the provider setting is changing rapidly. The fee-for-service is slowly becoming a payment model of the past and payment models focused on quality and risk will have far more weight than the current fee-for-service alone. These new risk models focus more on the reason the patient is treated and less on what service is being provided or procedure performed. Programs such as MIPS, CMS-HCC, HHS-HCC and Medicaid CDPS are directly impacted by these changes. Providers and payers alike are looking to expert coders and auditors to ensure patient risk is being accurately documented and reported utilizing the ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding system. This class will prepare students for National certification as a risk adjustment coder (Certified Risk Coder) and/or auditor (Certified Health Care Risk Auditor).
*Note: Maximum size for these courses is 10 students per class. Payment arrangements are available and will be discussed at the first class for those wishing to be established on a payment plan. $300 down payment required to hold seat. Register now to guarantee your spot!
