Physicians are frustrated when they do work, not related to seeing a patient, and don’t get paid for it. And yet, it is vitally important to their patients and families.
This webinar will describe three sets of care management services that can be billed by primary care practitioners and specialists. Transitional care management (TCM) is for managing the transition of complex patients from a facility to a non-facility (typically, home). Principal care management (PCM) services, currently described with HCPCS codes, were developed for specialists managing one serious condition. And chronic care management (CCM), describes work that can be performed by clinical staff or practitioners for patients with two or more chronic illnesses. This webinar will describe the rules and reimbursement for TCM, PCM and CCM.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Select the correct care management service
- Describe the time requirements for services their practice can perform, and whether the service must be done by the billing practitioner or clinical staff
- Review the documentation for the service
