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

Join founding ACDIS Advisory Board member William E. Haik, MD, FCCP, CDIP, of DRG Review, Inc., for an in-depth look at the 2019 CC/MCC list and get a seasoned physician’s perspective on how to query for some of the most commonly missed diagnoses.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • List criteria that qualifies a diagnosis to be considered as an “other” diagnosis
  • Discuss the role of compliant documentation in MS-DRG CC/MCC capture
  • Analyze clinical indicators of selected diagnoses to improve queries


  • Guidelines for reporting other diagnoses
    • Uniform Hospital Discharge Data Set
    • The “general rule” for reporting other (additional) diagnoses
  • Complications/comorbid conditions (CC)
    • Acuity of DVT
    • Acute respiratory distress syndrome 
    • Hypertensive crisis/emergency/urgency
    • Types of heart failure
  • Major complications/comorbid conditions (MCC)
    • Postop respiratory failure/insufficiency
    • Functional quadriplegia
