2024 CMS Medicare Advantage, HCC and Risk Adjustment Coding New Guidelines – HCC Transition from V24

Conference Materials (Password Required)

The proposed changes for Medicare Advantage in CY 2024 are going to be significant. This includes changes to HCC coding, disease mappings, disease coefficient values, and will affect all aspects of risk adjustment scores across all Medicare Advantage Organizations. The change will also affect how ICD-10-CM codes are currently mapped. The version transition will see the deleting of 2294 diagnosis codes that will no longer map to an HCC but, also added 268 diagnosis codes which will now map to an HCC in v28. Fee for service will also greatly be impacted during this change. Risk adjustment has never been under scrutiny as it is today. We will also discuss how to survive an OIG audit and maintain documentation compliance during the transition.
