Description:
The Care Coordinator role in primary care is a pivotal position that improves patient outcome and increases clinic revenue.

The Chronic Care Management (CCM) code has been a billable service for primary care practices since January 1, 2015.
CMS estimates that nearly 69% of all Medicare beneficiaries would qualify for this service – equaling 35 Million eligible beneficiaries nationwide. In addition to CCM, the Care Coordinator is the ideal role to incorporate other services that CMS continues to introduce.

The 2019 regulations provide additional opportunities to expand your care coordination program.  If you have a CCM program in your practice or if you have not yet begun a chronic care management program, join us for this webinar to gain a greater understanding of how you can provide or expand your care coordination services.

Objectives:

Upon completion of the webinar, the participant will be knowledgeable of expanding reimbursement opportunities in primary care and understand:

  1. The basic requirements to provide chronic care management services
  2. The various team based services that can be incorporated into your care coordination program
  3. How to leverage the care coordinator relationships with patients to incorporate innovative services into your practice

Interesting Fact:
Effective January 1, 2019, CMS will begin reimbursing for virtual visits.  Learn what they are, how to use them, and how to incorporate them into care coordination.
