Chronic Care Management 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-to-face follow-up care outside the office” each month.
