Tackle TCM denials, secure CCM payment streams

Discover new chronic care management (CCM) revenue opportunities and avoid transitional care management (TCM) denials with expert guidance to properly bill for these services you may already be doing in your practice.

In response to evolving health care service payment models to improve patient management, CMS adopted TCM and CCM codes. With these new codes come both payment challenges and opportunities.

Challenge: Since 2013, practices have struggled to get paid properly for TCM codes, losing out on a good chunk of reimbursement dollars. And the numbers don’t lie. CCM pays about $40 and the TCM codes pay up to $234 in nationalized non-facility par figures. Yet, in a recent 2015 survey, only 22% of practices had a CCM program, and only half of them had successfully submitted a claim.

Opportunity: You can now increase practice revenue without seeing more patients — and get paid for care you likely already provide — by billing care management for the appropriate patients. But only if you fulfill Medicare’s requirements.

Get the proven billing strategies you need to incorporate these codes properly to avoid reimbursement problems and capture new revenue by signing up for this webinar today.
