Use New Medicare Codes to Help Bill For Clinic Services
New Medicare regs will incentivize using pharmacists in clinics...to improve continuity of care and reimbursement.
Chronic care management (CCM). Starting January 1, 2015, CCM payment will cover non-face-to-face care...delivered electronically, by phone, etc...that is documented in the EHR.
Medicare patients are eligible for CCM if they have two or more chronic conditions that put them at risk for disability or death...hypertension, arthritis, depression, etc.
