The CCM Fee: Nuts and Bolts

The CCM Fee: Nuts and Bolt

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced the Chronic Care Management (CCM) fee in 2015. It reimburses providers for patient encounters made outside of the office where they establish, monitor, update, or coach patients on their care plan.

Qualified providers, including certain mid-level providers, can bill up to 20 minutes of qualifying care per patient per month for the CCM fee. In return, the practice receives $43 for each patient receiving such care every month.
