Chronic Care Management (CCM) services are non-face-to-face services offered to Medicare beneficiaries with two or more chronic diseases that are expected to last at least 12 months or until the patient’s death. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recognize that CCM services are essential components of primary care that promote better health and lower total healthcare expenditures. CCM allows physicians and healthcare organizations to provide ongoing therapy to patients via remote interactions.
Medicare will reimburse for the CCM program if at least 20 minutes of patient service is provided every month. To be eligible for CCM, a patient must have two or more chronic diseases and the physician must report any chronic ailments one is experiencing 12 months before the CCM participation.
