According to CMS, 2/3 of Medicare patients have 2 or more chronic conditions. In 2015, Medicare introduced a chronic care management program to reimburse physicians who create a care plan for these patients.
The chronic care management program must be provided under the general supervision of a physician, but it actually requires 20 minutes per month of non-face-to-face management of these patients. While this type of care is typically too costly to be provided by physician office staff, our partner has created a program where you can meet the criteria and be paid for chronic care management (CPT 99490).
A practice with 200 patients enrolled in the CCM program has the potential to increase revenue by up to $40,000 per year.
Certified Medical Assistants follow your Care Plan and communicate directly with your patients, and/or their caregivers, to document progress and encourage them to stay on track between office appointments.
Our partner’s patient care advocate team works with your office to develop a personalized approach to meet each patient's specific needs.
Little to no investment or software is needed! Our partner collects data from your existing EHR and takes care of the rest. *A certified EHR is required
