  • At Carolina Complete Health, we work to improve not only the health of our members, but also the economic and social issues that can act as barriers to proper care. Social factors, including education, social supports, and poverty, can affect a person’s risk factors for premature death and life expectancy. Assessing the impacts of SDoH is essential to the achievement of greater health equity

Continuity of Care Program

Carolina Complete Health is committed to supporting your efforts to provide the highest quality care to our members. As a result,  Carolina Complete Health launched a Continuity of Care (CoC) Risk Adjustment program effective February 2022.

Determine if the Suspected Condition is ‘Active’ or ‘Resolved/Not Present’.

Use the Crosswalk of available ICD10 Codes by clicking on the Suspected Condition or please email your Provider Engagement Administrator for support.

No, marking ‘Resolved/Not Present’ will not remove a condition from the agenda. We use a 3-year lookback for suspected & documented conditions using data we gather from CMS or the State, along with prescriptions and diagnostics that may have taken place. If a higher/lower acuity level was billed after they indicated ‘Resolved/Not Present’, that new condition category may show up this year.

Yes, one Appointment Agenda per targeted member (unless they change TIN/Groups). Not all members are in the program, as they may not have any history of Risk Adjusted Disease Conditions.

As members move, the data will update during the various waves if there is still a need to recapture risk conditions that may not have been submitted year to date. Anything written on an Appointment Agenda cannot be used, the Intake Team looks for a name/signature then enters in the Check Boxes only.

Yes, you have the ability to follow the same process as downloading, saving, and printing.

If what they find and document/bill for is within the same family of the Suspected Condition, they would indicate ‘Active Dx/Documented’.   In the scenario where the ICD10 Code they are billing is not within the Crosswalk of Codes related to that condition listed, they would indicate ‘Resolved/Not Present’
