Chronic Care Management Programs Help Improve Quality of Care and Increase Reimbursement

Chronic Care ManagementAccording to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), approximately 93% of our nation’s total Medicare spending is on beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions. As the population ages, physician practices face the challenge of improving the quality of care for chronically ill patients while containing costs.

Under the new chronic care management program authorized by CMS, physicians are now being reimbursed under CPT® code 99490 for providing non-face-to-face care coordination services to eligible Medicare patients with multiple chronic conditions. However, compliance with the program’s requirements is essential to receive payments, and meeting them on your own can require additional staff and technology investment.
