CCM Program Rules and Requirements

Beginning in 2015, CMS and Medicare created a new CPT code to allow providers to reimburse for non-face-to-face care coordination services.  The new Code is 99490.  It allows providers to receive a reimbursement of around $40 per patient per month (amount varies by region).  These are the main criteria of the program:

  • The patient must have multiple (two or more) chronic conditions expected to last at least 12 months, or until the death of the patient.
  • Chronic conditions place the patient at significant risk of death, acute exacerbation / decompensation, or functional decline.
  • Comprehensive care plan established, implemented, revised, or monitored.

There are additional requirements on the technology side as well.  We’ll be happy to answer any questions that you might have about CCM and also explore whether our chronic care management software can help address your needs!
