Do you know which diagnoses move a complication or comorbid condition (CC) into a major CC (MCC) bucket? Even seasoned CDI professionals need to take an annual look at the CC/MCC lists released as part of the inpatient prospective payment system to stay abreast of current coding conventions and documentation improvement opportunities.
