Medicare has made it easier for you to get paid for treating your sickest chronically ill patients. In some cases, they have even increased the amount you can be paid for the added time and effort required to care for them.
The Catch: Medicare chronic care management billing (including transitional care management) is complicated —especially the tricky bundling and diagnoses requirements. BUT, if you do it right, you can finally get paid for the additional care you provide to your chronically ill patients.
You can find out how from billing and coding expert, Kim Huey MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO. During her 90-minute online training, you’ll get a step-by-step breakdown of the complexities of how to accurately, and more successfully, bill Medicare chronic care management. Finally, you’ll know how to get paid for the added time and attention your chronically ill patients require.
Here is just a small sample of the many Medicare chronic care management billing strategies you’ll receive during this expert-led online training:
- Get paid for every possible minute by correctly capturing extended and clinical staff time
- Use principal care management codes to uncover less complex patient billable services
- Determine how you can get paid for services in addition to care management codes
- Proven strategies to audit-proof your documentation of care management services
- Meet care plan element requirements to improve chronic care claim pay up
- Boost pay up by billing concurrently for chronic care and transitional care management code
- Get more patients qualified for care management services
- Master 5 required technical capabilities CMS mandates to bill care management
- More easily meet 24/7 provider coverage requirements
- Pin down at-risk patient populations to improve care and your bottom line
- And much, much more!
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 chronic care management guidelines. At the rate of $84.92 per patient per month, if you have just 50 patients that qualify, you could bring in an additional $50,946 per year. This added revenue is compensating you for work you are going to provide anyway, so you have nothing to lose.
Don’t make the costly mistake of thinking that you don’t have the time to comply with Medicare chronic care management (and transitional care management) requirements. You can get the answers you need, along with step-by-step guidance to help you provide the best possible care to your patients and get paid more for the services you provide to your chronically ill patients.
CMS has made it clear that it wants you to utilize Medicare chronic care management and transitional care management codes more often. In the long run, they realize that this added care to your chronically ill patients will actually lower healthcare costs. But you must understand the nuances of care management billing requirements to make it work.
Don’t wait. Register for this 90-minute, expert-led online training session and gain the knowledge and skills to get paid more (or paid in the first place) for the care you’re already likely providing to your chronically ill patients. Sign up today!
