Chronic care conditions are among the most common expensive and preventable healthcare problems in United States. Annually helping these patients manage their conditions between office visits, you probably haven’t been reimbursed for, but now you can be. Recently the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services began a new chronic care management program that reimburses for non-face-to-face monthly consultation with Medicare patients with multiple chronic conditions. This program requires a minimum of 20 minutes of clinical staff time per month directed by a physician or other qualified healthcare professional. By meeting CMS requirements you can bill an average of $42.60 per month per patient which can significantly impact your bottom line.
But to run a program like this you have to bear substantial cost for clinical consultation, additional time for documentation and billing and since compliance is essential for reimbursement, meeting all program elements on your own may require further technology investments and additional staff. This could become costly. But what if there is a way to participate in program yet avoid the upfront costs and additional staff and technology here is where HQ Analytics comes in.
