Your patients may be reluctant to seek healthcare because of COVID-19 related fears. Learn how to seize this opportunity to implement Chronic Care Management (CCM) services and engage your patients in chronic disease management.
Government and private payers alike recognize Chronic Care Management as a critical component of primary care that contributes to better health and care for individuals. Medicare began paying separately under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) for CCM services furnished to patients with multiple chronic conditions in 2015 and expanded care management services in 2020. Engaging patients in Chronic Care Management will give them the support they need between provider visits to become active partners in their own healthcare.
