Chronic Care Management (CCM)
Better Chronic Care… > $100K Add-on Revenue per PCP per Year!
As of 2015, Medicare offers special reimbursement for coordinating care to complex chronic patients.
Roughly ⅔ of your Medicare patients are eligible. You can bill Medicare about $42 for as little as 20 minutes of non-face-to-face time every month. Services can be provided by clinical or non-clinical staff under general supervision by a clinician.
Adding CCM services in an already busy practice may seem daunting. However, with just a few extra steps and some add-on technology that integrates seamlessly with your EHR, you can be well on your way to improving care and increasing revenue by $100K per PCP or more!
If you don’t have the staff resources to provide CCM services on your own, you can also choose a turnkey solution, including all necessary care coordination services. And since our care coordination services use the same integrated Clinigence technology, you maintain close contact with your patients and the ability for your staff to engage with them at any time!
