CCM- Chronic Care Management
Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program
Medicare recently introduced the Chronic Care Management Program. This program compensates providers that coordinate the care of Medicare patients who have two or more chronic conditions. It is open to patients no matter where they live. Providers are reimbursed $42-94 per month per patient for coordinating their care.
This potential revenue is in addition to other services, like office visits that the provider bills for. In order to be eligible for this reimbursement, the provider must document at least 20 minutes per month in non -face-to-face care of patients.
Tele-Video visits are an ideal way to provide and document the service at the same time. Under the Chronic Care Management program, the patient does not need to be at an Originating site, making this an ideal service to provide while the patient is at home.
To improve patient quality of life while reducing both risk and cost of complex patients with multiple co-morbidities through Chronic Care Management (CCM) and High Acuity programs via Telehealth.
