Chronic Care Mangement
What is Chronic Care Management?
Chronic Care Management (CCM) services are available for patients who have two or more chronic conditions or on-going health problems. With CCM, you receive care from your doctor’s office between office visits, usually over the phone. CCM services help you manage your illnesses to improve your health and lower your medical costs.
What are chronic conditions?
A chronic condition is a disease that affects you for at least 12 months and will get worse over time if not treated.
How does CCM start?
To start receiving CCM services, you must tell your doctor you want CCM services. You can receive CCM services from only one doctor in a calendar month. You can stop receiving CCM services any time by telling your doctor.
How can CCM help me?
If you have CCM services, you can contact your doctor at any time – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You benefit by talking with someone who knows your medical history and needs.
What does CCM cost?
CCM services are paid for by Medicare Part B, which means that Medicare pays for 80 percent of the service. You will have 20 percent copay, which is about $8 a month for 20 minutes of CCM services. If you have a Medicare supplemental insurance policy, then your Medicare supplemental insurance will pay the copay. If you are receiving Medicaid, your copay may be paid for by Medicaid, depending on how you qualified for Medicaid. Ask your doctor for details on how this applies to you.

New Revenue for Providers
Finally, the ability to provide the care your chronically ill patients deserve and the financial incentive to make it feasible. A recent study by the American Academy of Family Physicians found that a care coordination program, similar to our program, in a primary care setting significantly improved 16 different HEDIS measures spanning diabetes, CAD, and prevention services.
While improving your patients’ experiences and medical outcomes is the primary focus of Chronic Care Management, the revenue potential makes it a win-win proposition. Practices can earn $40.39/month providing CCM services for qualified patients, which translates to more than $240K per year with 500 enrolled patients.
