As our population ages, more and more of your patients are likely to have at least one chronic condition. And, as you know, these patients are more complex and can require significantly more of your time to treat and help them cope with their illnesses. In the past, this meant that you would lose money when treating your sickest patients…but not anymore.
In 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) incorporated new reimbursable codes to account for Complex Chronic Care, Psychiatric Collaborative Care Management and Behavioral Health Integration. This expanded the scope of chronic care services that can be billed and reimbursed.
New in 2018, CMS replaced many G codes with new CPT codes including those used to report Psychiatric Collaborative Care Management and Behavioral Health Integration.
Mastering how to correctly apply and bill these codes can get you paid for services you’ve been providing for free for years. CMS is moving toward a quality vs. quantity model, and this can work to your advantage — if you know how to correctly submit and support your claims.

REMEMBER: Getting paid for the additional time and effort you put into caring for your sickest patients can pay off.

Or, if you have a 100 patients who qualify for complex CCM you could receive an additional $168,816 annually. Can you really afford NOT get paid for these services?
