Chronic Care Management

As of January 1st, 2015, family physicians may now bill Medicare for Chronic Care Management services that include non face-to-face care coordination services. The AAFP has published a summary of the 2015 Medicare Fee Schedule that highlights its important points. When administered and documented according to the requirements as outlined in the fee schedule, physicians will be able to bill Medicare $42.60 per patient, per month for patients with two or more chronic medical conditions.
