Since 2015 Chronic Care Management has been billable through Medicare and providers have wanted to participate in chronic care management but didn’t want to hire more staff or burden their current staff. That’s why we have a nurse that will handle the coordination for you. We find the patients, help develop a plan based on your notes, you approve or change the plan and we do the work for you.
What is Chronic Care Management?
The program is designed for patients who are on medicare and have 2 or more predefined chronic conditions that you are managing and have been diagnosed and billed for in the past year. The chronic conditions are listed in the blue box. You develop a care plan for the patient, discuss the benefits of participating in the program, and we handle the monthly contact with the patient. We follow up with the patient to reconcile medications to see if everything is working with them. We can handle their concerns to present to the doctor and remind them of flu shots and other appointments. The chronic care management program can by billed by certified nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
