HCC-Profiling a Member with Diagnosis Codes

To get a HCC profile from a list of diagnosis codes (in ICD-10):

>>> rp = he.profile(["E1169", "I5030", "I509", "I211", "I209", "R05"])
>>> print(json.dumps(rp, indent=2))
{
  "risk_score": 1.3139999999999998,
  "details": {
    "CNA_M70_74": 0.379,
    "CNA_HCC85": 0.323,
    "CNA_HCC88": 0.14,
    "CNA_HCC18": 0.318,
    "CNA_HCC85_gDiabetesMellit": 0.154,
    "CNA_DIABETES_CHF": 0.0
  },
  "hcc_lst": [
    "HCC85",
    "HCC88",
    "HCC18"
  ],
  "hcc_map": {
    "I5030": "HCC85",
    "I209": "HCC88",
    "E1169": "HCC18",
    "I509": "HCC85"
  },
  "parameters": {
    "age": 70,
    "sex": "M",
    "elig": "CNA",
    "medicaid": false,
    "disabled": 0,
    "origds": 0
  }
}
>>>

HCC-Profiling a New Member

If a member is new, then provide the elig="NE" in the input:

>>> rp = he.profile([], elig="NE", age=65)
>>> print(json.dumps(rp, indent=2))
{
  "risk_score": 0.514,
  "details": {
    "NE_NMCAID_NORIGDIS_NEM65": 0.514
  },
  "hcc_lst": [],
  "hcc_map": {},
  "parameters": {
    "age": 65,
    "sex": "M",
    "elig": "NE_NMCAID_NORIGDIS_NE",
    "medicaid": false,
    "disabled": 0,
    "origds": 0
  }
}
>>>

HCC-Profiling a Intitutionalized Member

If a member has a different eligibility status, change the eligibility as follows (e.g. institutionalized member):

>>> rp = he.profile(["E1169", "I5030", "I509", "I209"], elig="INS")
>>> print(json.dumps(rp, indent=2))
{
  "risk_score": 2.6059999999999994,
  "details": {
    "INS_M70_74": 1.323,
    "INS_HCC88": 0.497,
    "INS_HCC18": 0.441,
    "INS_HCC85": 0.191,
    "INS_HCC85_gDiabetesMellit": 0.0,
    "INS_DIABETES_CHF": 0.154
  },
  "hcc_lst": [
    "HCC88",
    "HCC18",
    "HCC85"
  ],
  "hcc_map": {
    "I209": "HCC88",
    "E1169": "HCC18",
    "I509": "HCC85",
    "I5030": "HCC85"
  },
  "parameters": {
    "age": 70,
    "sex": "M",
    "elig": "INS",
    "medicaid": false,
    "disabled": 0,
    "origds": 0
  }
}

HCC-Describing a Hierachical Condition Category

To get the description, hierarchy parents and children of a HCC:

>>> hcc_doc = he.describe_hcc("HCC19")  # either "HCC19", "hcc19" or "19"
>>> print(json.dumps(hcc_doc, indent=2))
{
  "description": "Diabetes without Complication",
  "children": [],
  "parents": [
    "HCC17",
    "HCC18"
  ]
}

Eligible Risk Adjustment Codes

Not all claims are eligible for risk adjustment. For professional claims, a certain set of CPT codes is required to be eligible, while for institutional claims, a certain set of bill types is needed. This module provides an easy interface for determining if a certain claim is eligible for risk adjustment or not.

NOTE: This function uses CPT codes, and this requires AMA CPT license. Once you carefully review the license, you need to download a data file.

>>> from hccpy.raeligible import RAEligible
>>> rae = RAEligible()
>>> rae.load(fn="CY2019Q2_CPTHCPCS_CMS_20190425.csv")
>>> rae.is_eligible(pr_lst=["C5271"])
True
>>> rae.is_eligible(pr_lst=["C5270"])
False
>>>

NOTE: The data file (CY2019Q2_CPTHCPCS_CMS_20190425.csv) should be located in the same folder.

NOTE

python -m build
twine upload dist/*
