Value-based care and quality payment models have made coding an integral part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), and Quality Payment Program (QPP). While CHCs are eligible, but not obligated to report via QPP and penalties for 2017 data do not impact CHC PPS payments, CHC exclusion won't last forever. Learning how current CHC coding/billing patterns impact how your organization, individually, and CHCs, collectively, are perceived may change the historic CHC tune of "coding does not matter."
