We are here to support you and your Provider
Chronic Care Management (CCM) is a program designed by MEDICARE and released in January of 2015. It is billed to Medicare and Medicare replacement plans. Many secondary insurances also cover this program, leaving minimal to zero out of pocket for your patients.
The goal of the program is to better coordinate the care of patients, increase compliance to Medicare's recommended preventative exams, and reduce hospitalization rates among patients. For patients to qualify for this program they must have two or more chronic illnesses expected to last more than 12 months. For an inclusive list of chronic illnesses, please reference the website for CMS, the list is quite large.
This CCM service is completed via telephone, mail, or email. Patients will receive calls monthly from medical staff to help monitor and educate patients about their current conditions. This service also provides a toll-free, nurse helpline that patients will have access to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This medical concierge service is an incredible benefit that Medicare is offering and we are pleased to bring it to you.
Our program was designed right in our own clinic and launched in March of 2015. We have been running and supporting this program for ourselves and other providers since 2015, which makes us one of the longest running CCM programs in the country. We have gone through a Medicare audit and passed without penalty. We maintain excellent contacts and support from Medicare to move our CCM program forward, bringing value to your practice and support to your patients.
Because we created this in our own clinic and expanded from there, we understand your business. We understand the time constraints that you and your staff have and have designed this to be unobtrusive in your day-to-day operations. We communicate with a provider, nurse, medical assistant, or a care coordinator in your office of your choosing. We customize the communication to best suit your needs. We use software, which you have access to, giving you full transparency into the work we do with your patients.
Implementation of this program is simple and we can have it operational within a week. If you have any questions or would like to implement a program, please press the "get started" button and we will get back with you quickly.
