Make the Most of CCM Benefits

Earning $42 per patient/month is on the table.

2/3 of your Medicare population may have 2 or more chronic conditions.* The Medicare Physician Fee Schedule pays for CCM.

What you need to know: you can bill for at little as 20 minutes of CCM services per month, the reimbursement is not only for physician's non-face-to-face time, but includes other clinical staff time under general supervision by a physician or other qualified clinician, and the services you are already providing may qualify.

The Clinigence CCM Registry

Unlock your EHR data and uncover chronic care cases.

The Clinigence Chronic Care Management Registry is more than a database - it intuitively displays your EHR data so that you can take the correct clinical actions to improve chronic care management and close gaps in care. The registry:

  • Sweeps your EHR data for patients with 2 or more chronic conditions
  • Displays clues found in medical coding of possible CCM related activity
  • Enables tracking of your CCM cases
  • Provides export data of your CCM cases

Consider the CCM Opportunity

Based on data for the average primary care practice, your care coordination efforts can be funded by CCM reimbursements. Combine Annual Wellness Visits, closing gaps in care, and Chronic Care Management (CCM) reimbursement to help fund your Care Coordination efforts.
