PYA Releases Updated Chronic Care Management Manual

PYA has released an updated chronic care management (CCM) manual that reflects new 2017 CCM billing rules and offers guidance to providers as they develop and implement compliant CCM programs.

Since Medicare began reimbursing for chronic care management (CCM) services in 2015, providers have continued to seek comprehensive and fail-safe guidance for structuring, implementing, and managing CCM programs.  With the 2017 revisions to CCM billing rules, this updated manual is a timely resource for providers navigating these requirements.

PYA’s updated Chronic Care Management Clinical Services Manual instructs providers in developing efficient and regulatory-compliant CCM programs.  A valuable resource for providers in understanding Medicare billing and compliance rules for CCM, it provides sample policies, procedures, and forms to help implement effective CCM.

PYA Principal Martie Ross explained, “Physicians are eager to make CCM available to their patients, but are hesitant because the billing rules are unfamiliar.  PYA’s CCM manual explains these rules in a straightforward manner and provides resources to help providers furnish CCM in a compliant manner.”

Designed by clinicians, practice administrators, auditors, and healthcare attorneys with years of experience in Medicare compliance, the manual is a must-have resource for independent physician practices, accountable care organizations, and organizations furnishing care management services and technology solutions for CCM providers.  For more information about the CCM manual, contact Aaron Elias at PYA, (800) 270-9629.

The manual accompanies PYA’s updated white paper, Providing and Billing Medicare for Chronic Care Management Services (and Other Fee-For-Service Population Health Management Services), which condenses extensive regulations into a concise summary to help providers understand new rules for furnishing CCM services.
