Question:

Do I need to obtain each version update of the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) in order to effectively manage our coding practices?

Answer:

Yes, there are a varying number of changes in every update. The volume depends on the number of comments processed, the number of edits reviewed, and/or the number of focused efforts for edit development.
