Starting this month, Medicare is reimbursing physician practices for select Chronic Care Management (CCM) services not previously eligible for reimbursement, underscoring the vital role of care management in primary care.

Physician Reimbursement for Chronic Care Management: Identifying New Practice Revenue Opportunities offers practical guidance to prepare physician practices to maximize CCM reimbursement in the year ahead.

This 25-page resource draws from the 2015 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule to identify new sources of payment for physician practices while improving care coordination for beneficiaries with chronic illness.

Subject matter expert Rick Hindmand, attorney with McDonald Hopkins, a law firm advising clients nationally on healthcare reimbursement, provides a roadmap to obtaining payment for Medicare Chronic Care Management (CCM), covering such key issues as beneficiary eligibility, scope of chronic care services, system requirements, documentation, compliance issues, and more.

While geared to providers coordinating care for Medicare beneficiaries, the CCM framework suggests a practical approach to care coordination for Medicaid beneficiaries, the dually eligible and the privately insured, based on the likelihood that commercial payors will offer similar rewards for care coordination of chronic illness.

In Physician Reimbursement for Chronic Care Management: Identifying New Practice Revenue Opportunities, Hindmand reviews the following CCM payment guidelines:

  • Medicare beneficiary eligibility;
  • Six elements under scope of chronic care management services;
  • Care plan provisions;
  • Supervision requirements for clinical staff providing CCM services;
  • Electronic health record (EHR) requirements for CCM reimbursement;
  • Billing requirements;
  • Beneficiary disclosure and consent;
  • Documentation guidelines;
  • Compliance issues;
and much more, including responses to a host of FAQs so that physician practices are prepared to benefit from these new Medicare reimbursement opportunities.
