About Multiple Chronic Condition (MCC) Guidelines

Chronic conditions are conditions that last a year or more and require ongoing medical attention and/or limit activities of daily living. Multiple chronic conditions (MCCs) are concurrent chronic conditions. In other words, multiple chronic conditions are two or more chronic conditions that affect a person at the same time. For example, either a person with arthritis and hypertension or a person with heart disease and depression, both have multiple chronic conditions. (Source: External Web Site Policy).
The MCC tag identifies guidelines represented in NGC that provide actionable guidance addressing the treatment of two or more concurrent chronic conditions.
