Topic
Chronic Care Management

Description: 
In Calendar Year (CY) 2015, CMS will begin making separate payment under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) for chronic care management (CCM) services under Current Procedure Terminology (CPT) code 99490. CCM services are non-face-to-face care management/coordination services for certain Medicare beneficiaries having multiple (two or more) chronic conditions. During this MLN Connects™ National Provider Call, subject matter experts review the requirements for physicians and other practitioners to bill the new CPT code to the PFS.  A question and answer session follows the presentation.

Call participants are encouraged to review the following rules: The 2014 PFS final rule (CMS-1600-FC) pages 74414-74427 and the 2015 PFS final rule (CMS-1612-FC) pages 67715-67730, which are available on the CMS PFS web page.
