CMS began payment for Chronic Care Management in 2014, with multiple changes throughout the past 9 years (adding more codes, adding a New concept – Principle Care Management, increasing fees by 50%). CCM has become a hugely profitable endeavor for many healthcare providers.

More vendors are coming to the “playground” with their software, clinical teams, and billing capabilities. Providers must be more vigilant in choosing CCM vendors because the billing is always done under providers making them accountable for everything the vendor is doing. Understanding compliance, knowing best practices, and starting off appropriately is essential for a Chronic Care Management program to be effective, compliant, and efficient.
