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.
Inside this brand-new expert report, Chronic Care Management Coding – Your Step-by-Step CCM Coding Guide to Help You Ethically Get Paid More for the Services You Provide to Your Sickest Patients, created in collaboration with nationally recognized coding expert Kim Garner Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, you can follow our expert’s step-by-step approach and finally get paid for the Chronic Care Management (CCM) services that your practice provides. Your office will be able to administer CCM, ethically boost your reimbursement, and ensure the outcomes that you, your providers, patients, and CMS want to achieve.

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 (including their new code for 2019). On your own, this is no small feat. The reporting requirements are still numerous. But, with a little guidance, you can master the rules quickly and easily.
You can finally get paid more for the additional time you spend and services you provide to your chronically ill patients by attending this 90-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 $42.17 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
- Identify all care providers that qualify to bill CCM – it might surprise you
- Determine whether the 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 additional reimbursement for the added time you spend
IMPORTANT: Considering that half of all Americans in the U.S. (117 million people) suffer from at least one chronic disease, it’s likely you have quite a few patients that qualify under CCM guidelines. That means you can pick up an additional $43 to $141 (depending on the complexity of each patient’s needs) per month per patient. This added revenue is compensating you for work you are going to provide anyway, so you have nothing to lose.
