Did you know, in 2015, Medicare started paying Physicians for NON-Face-to-Face care management? Did you also know that this program is still under utilized?
Chronic Care Management is care coordination services done outside of the regular office visit for patients with two or more chronic conditions. These services are typically non-face-to-face and allows eligible practitioners to bill for at least 20 minutes or more of care coordination services per month.
Physicians are missing out on this ongoing revenue stream while patients are deprived of their benefits and Medicare expenditures continuing to rise.
