Chronic Care Management Services

"Many providers struggle to balance the 24/7 needs of chronically ill patients within the huge scope of their duties, unable to devote staff to the full-time job of communicating with and creating care plans for these patients outside of face-to-face office visits."
— Michelle Li, MD  |  Internal Medicine

That’s why we’re here.

We make CCM effective for your patients and simple for your practice.
You can do it yourself, or do it effortlessly with Wellbox.

CCM at a glance

117 million Americans have one or more chronic health conditions.
2/3 of Medicare beneficiaries have 2 or more chronic conditions.

Patients with multiple chronic conditions often visit multiple providers in different organizations, leading to duplication and conflicts in Care Plans.

Medicare began allowing physicians to bill for chronic care management (CCM) in 2015.

CMS specifies that the code must be billed for “non-face-time follow-up care outside the office” each month.
