Description

In a fee-for-service world, diagnosis coding has one function: to establish the medical necessity of the service. However, many practices are joining ACOs, reporting using MIPS, joining APMs, or have risk-adjusted contracts with private payers. This makes it critical to accurately report diagnosis codes that reflect the complexity of patients. Learn how risk adjustment works as we move from fee-for-service to value-based payments.
