Certified Risk Adjustment Coder (CRC) training

Certified Risk Adjustment Coder (CRC)

A Certified Risk Adjustment Coder (CRC) has proven, through rigorous testing and experience, that he can read a medical record and assign the correct diagnostic codes (ICD-10-CM) for a wide variety of clinical cases and risk adjustment service models (e.g. Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC), Chronic Disease and Disability Payment System (CDPS), and United States Department of Health Risk Adjustment (HHS


The greater the disease burden of the patient, the higher the patient’s risk adjustment value. If the patient is healthy, the risk adjustment value is lower. A patient’s state of health reflects the cost of their health needs. CRCs should ensure that vendor documentation for HCC coding is up to date and disease processes are accurately coded to follow risk adjustment patterns.

Invest in your future with CRC credentials – certified coders earn 40% more than coders without credentials.
