Question:

If a patient has multiple diabetic complications, will coding all of them have an impact on the risk score?

Answer:

  • Credit is given once for each HCC category captured within the calendar year (after hierarchies are implied).
  • Depending on the specific complication, additional credit may be given for the HCC of the complication.
