When a patient is admitted to the hospital, for surgery or treatment of diseases, they are considered an in-patient case. If any pre-existing condition is present when entering the hospital, this may affect the path of care and be categorized as CC/MCC. If the patient experiences complications during hospitalization that changes the treatment plan, this may also become a case with CC/MCC. These cases use more resources and services, so this is considered into the cost of care for a patient with the DRG/CC/MCC noted on their medical record.
