Two-thirds of Medicare patients suffer from two or more chronic conditions, accounting for 93% of Medicare spend. To tackle this problem, CMS has launched the Chronic Care Management (CCM) program to reimburse providers that help patients manage their health. CMS pays a monthly fee for 20 minutes or more of CCM services such as phone consultations, prescription refills, and care coordination.

The revenue potential for participating in the CCM program is substantial, but many organizations have not been able to realize an ROI. They are leaving millions of dollars on the table and missing the chance to improve patients’ long-term outcomes.

Join Dr. Bret Shillingstad and Jeff St. Vrain in a live webinar in which they share best practices for generating ROI from CCM services, based on their work with health systems. They will cover:

    • The latest CCM program updates and expanded billing codes
    • How to handle compliance, consent and co-pays
    • Use of technology to identify CCM activities in the EHR, which can help fund the expansion of CCM services
