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)
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

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, FQHC and RHCs.
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.
