You can get paid even more for your sickest patients – basically reimbursing you closer to what you deserve for the added care you provide for them. But there is a catch…
…you must know how to correctly apply Chronic Care Management (CCM) codes and their recent updates. On your own, this is no small feat. The reporting requirements are still numerous. But, with a little guidance, you can master the requirements quickly and easily.
You can finally get paid more for the additional services you provide to your sickest patients by utilizing this 60-minute online training session presented by national coding expert and educator Kim Garner Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO.
Here are just some of the tactics you’ll receive during this online training session:
- Identify CCM eligible patients more easily and earn your $40.39 per month per patient
- Calculate “hidden” times you can include toward the 20-minute requirement
- Boost care planning pay up for patients with cognitive impairment (new 2018 code - 99483)
- Identify all care providers that qualify to bill CCM – it might surprise you
- Determine whether the new 2018 CCM telehealth services code will work for you
- Sidestep sabotaging CCM reimbursement with the four services you cannot bill at the same time
- Learn how rural health clinics and FQHCs qualify to bill for CCM services
- Avoid confusion between CCM and transitional care management with simple to use tools
- Develop a successful patient-centered care plan document that will withstand an audit every time
- Bullet-proof your CCM documentation to avoid denials and potential audits
- And so much more…
Regardless of your specialty, if you see chronically ill patients, you deserve to receive the additional reimbursement these codes afford (i.e. allergy/asthma, diabetes, gastroenterology, hospice, immunology, internal medicine, mental health, neurology, nephrology, ophthalmology, podiatry, primary care, rheumatology, urology, etc.). And considering there are more than 133 million patients in the US that suffer from at least one chronic disease, it’s likely you have quite a few patients that would qualify for CCM reimbursement.
IMPORTANT: The additional revenue you’ll receive by accurately reporting CCM services is significant. Per patient each month your reimbursement can be between $43 and $141(depending on the complexity of each patient’s needs). For example, if you have 50 patients that qualify for CCM, at the average rate of $92 per patient per month, your additional annual reimbursement is $55,200. Can you really afford NOT to utilize these codes?
Don’t wait any longer. If you care for chronically ill patients and are not utilizing CCM codes, you’re leaving tens of thousands of reimbursement dollars on the table just waiting to be collected. In only 60 minutes, you can get everything you need to ensure you receive the additional reimbursement you’re rightfully entitled to for caring these chronically ill patients.
