Chronic Care Management

Chronic Care Management (CCM) is the active coordination of care and services completed outside of regular patient visits on patients with multiple (2 or more) chronic conditions expected to last at least 12 months or until the death of the patient, and that place the patient at significant risk of death, acute exacerbation or decompensation, or functional decline.

Medicare (CMS) recognizes CCM as one of the critical components of primary care that contributes to better health and care for individuals, as well as reduced overall healthcare spending. CCM enhances patients’ access to qualified health care professionals and clinical staff working on their behalf.

How do Patients Benefit from CCM?

Medicare CCM services are typically non-face-to-face and ensure a higher level of care coordination. Patients with two or more chronic medical conditions and above the age of 65 can stay connected through telephone, web, or mobile applications with their care providers for regular monitoring and in case of emergencies.

Such coordinated care improves their overall wellbeing and reduces readmission rates and ER visits. For patients who are both Medicare and Medicaid eligible, there is no copay or fee.

How It Works

Chronic Care Management (CCM) program by CMS is more extensive than what is typically involved in a doctor or NP visit. CCM includes a structured recording of patient health information, maintaining a comprehensive electronic care plan month to month, managing transitions of care and other care management services, and coordinating and sharing patient health information timely within and outside the facility and practice.

Challenges in Delivering Chronic Care Management

Nearly 70% of the 67.7 million Medicare patients in 2020 are challenged with two or more chronic conditions. However, most healthcare providers don’t have the capacity or infrastructure to give them the help and attention they need on a monthly basis.

Most providers acknowledge one or more of these issues when it comes to patient engagement during chronic disease management.

  • Inability to track patient’s health progress after office visits
  • Lack of patient compliance and consistent follow-up
  • Poor treatment compliance and medication adherence at home
  • No financial leverages for time spent with patient outside an office
