Chronic Care Management (CCM)
Billing Guidelines White Paper
You are already doing the work – Make sure you get paid for it.
Clinicians spend long hours providing face-to-face medical services to their patients, but it doesn’t stop there. Typical office hours are regularly extended by other necessary patient-centric tasks; including reviewing results, creating care plans, managing consult requests, submitting refills, responding to patients via phone or portal, etc. The truth is these types of ancillary services have always been required for the overall health and satisfaction of a patient population, but historically have not been recognized with separate wRVU’s or reimbursement.
Now that has changed. Patients will continue to benefit, but providers are also incentivized.
Medical providers charged with caring for those suffering from multiple chronic illnesses, have the opportunity to increase their revenue substantially based on the size and demographics of their practice. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) developed and released guidelines for chronic care management (CCM) services which focuses on the time and effort spent each month coordinating, communicating and engaging with the patients who need it the most.
In all, this is great news. Beyond the recognition of total work performed and increased reimbursement, CCM represents a natural Segway into the value-based care environment. When providers qualify for CCM billing, they are well on their way to meeting the goals defined in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, known as MACRA.
