Best Practices for Chronic Care Management Coding
With half of all adults suffering from one or more chronic health conditions, chronic care management has become critical to monitoring and controlling disparate patient treatments. As a result, a growing number of medical professionals are offering Chronic Care Management (CCM) services to their patients. Not only does this make a significant impact on patient care and safety, CCM has also become a new revenue stream for your practice.
Because of this, the AMA has introduced, and CMS has provided reimbursement for, several new codes intended to reimburse primary care physicians for managing patients with chronic illness, including transitions in care from inpatient to community-based settings. CCM is designed to provide better care as well as lowering costs by reducing hospital readmission rates and emergency room visits.
This 90-minute online training will teach you the ins and outs of CCM coding and billing. Our speaker, Kim Huey, will review the multiple requirements of each code, as well as documentation issues that could be keeping your practice from benefiting financially from providing these services if coding is not done correctly.
