Medicare’s Chronic Care Management (CCM) codes can help medical groups finance the practice investments necessary to succeed in value-based care. However, providers have been slow to adopt CCM codes, with claims submitted for less than one percent of eligible beneficiaries in the program’s first year. Medicare revised the program in 2016, adding new CCM codes and other program changes to facilitate provider adoption.
Despite these improvements, many challenges—including securing provider engagement and identifying the best staffing model—still remain for groups seeking to bill Medicare for chronic care management services.
Read this report for guidance on overcoming these and other hurdles to capturing CCM revenue. Then, review the additional case studies to see how your peers have used CCM codes to support other strategic aims.
