Identify and engage eligible Medicare beneficiaries

Medicare beneficiaries must have two chronic conditions to be eligible to participate in Chronic Care Management. Since three out of four people older than 65 have two or more chronic conditions, a large number of your patients should be eligible to participate. Additionally, the Chronic Care Management program requires that each enrolled patient have:

  • An office visit within the previous 365 days

  • 20 minutes per month of non-face-to-face care

  • 24/7 access to care management

  • Only one provider billing for CCM services (CPT code 99490)

Enrollment Process

Most practices that attempt an in-house CCM program enroll only 10% of their eligible Medicare patients. ChartSpan has learned that the best way to enroll CCM patients is with a group of trained Enrollment Specialists who are experts at engaging patients on the benefits of Medicare’s CCM services and overcoming patient objections. As a result, ChartSpan averages 60%+ patient enrollments. Our team will:

  • Construct Eligible Patient Lists

  • Reconcile Missing CPT Codes and Establish Coinsurance Estimates

  • Obtain Patient Consent with Proven Marketing Strategies

  • Manage the daily churn-in and churn-out of patients

Chronic Care Management Patient Benefits

Assessment

During our Chronic Care Management enrollment process, our data team will assess your patient data and identify patients who are eligible for CCM according to Medicare requirements. Then, we will send the eligible patient list for final approval.

Education

We then begin by educating patients on our program through voicemails, emails and letters, making multiple attempts to contact each patient so you don't have to. After filling patients in on what to expect, we'll ask for their consent and complete the necessary documentation.

Participation

By handling every step of the CCM enrollment process, we enable your team to spend less time focusing on logistics and more time providing patient care. We make it simple to improve your CCM program with higher program participation.

CCM is Available for A Variety of Practice Types

Chronic Care Management can be billed by a variety of practice types. ChartSpan currently provides CCM services to several types of healthcare clientele including primary care, specialty practices, Federal Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs).

Primary Care

  • Internal Medicine
  • Adult Medicine
  • Family Medicine
  • Geriatric Medicine
  • Pain Management
  • Preventative Medicine

Specialty Practices

  • Rheumatology
  • Nephrology
  • Urology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Endocrinology
  • Cardiology

If You Are an FQHC or RHC

Recognizing that patients who benefit the most from Chronic Care Management are served by providers who qualify for Federal Qualified Health Center (FQHC) or Rural Health Clinic (RHC) status, Medicare has made significant changes to CCM reimbursements in the past two years that can bring big advantages to your practice – and your patients.

CMS increased Chronic Care Management reimbursements from an average of $42 to more than $66 per encounter with a minimum of 20 minutes of care. The CCM billable code for this is G0511.

We’ll Work With Your EHR

The Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a crucial tool for pulling eligible CCM patient lists, pushing out patient comprehensive care plans, and billing each month. ChartSpan is the only CCM vendor to offer No-Charge Data Integrations with any EHR that does not data block.

CCM Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

By providing these patients with a 24/7 care team to help them manage chronic diseases on top of the medical care you provide, you are helping them improve their overall clinical outcomes and quality of life. Patient engagement will improve, and your CCM patients will be provided with a comprehensive care plan that guides them on a path to better health.
