New Medicare Reimbursement for Chronic Care Management (CCM)
Products & Services:

Care coordination is key to health care delivery and payment reform. As an incentive to medical practices, CMS now allows reimbursement for performing these vital functions when they are billed using the new Medicare CCM services code. For Calendar Year 2015, Medicare will pay an average of $42.60 for each eligible patient receiving 20 minutes of CCM services within a 30 day period. Also, this reimbursement can be billed for each subsequent 30 day period that CCM services are delivered. Providing CCM services will allow your practice to:

• Increase practice revenue up to $5,000 per provider/month
• Deliver better patient care
• Meet performance measures
• Improve patient satisfaction
• Shift more to patient-centered care
• Prepare for value-based payer contracts

Providing CCM services is the best way for a practice to prepare for payment reform – while significantly increasing practice revenue from day one.
