PYA has released an updated white paper, “Providing and Billing Medicare for Chronic Care Management and Related Services.” PYA first published its chronic care management (CCM) white paper in 2015, when Medicare began reimbursing physicians for these services. As the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has updated billing rules and expanded reimbursement, PYA has updated this resource on which numerous providers have relied in developing their CCM programs. The 2024 version of the white paper reflects the most recent round of rulemaking and guidance relating to care management services, as well as updated payment rates.
“PYA’s updated white paper condenses the latest regulations and related agency guidance into an easily consumed summary,” said PYA Principal and Director of the Center for Rural Health Advancement Martie Ross. “Our Q&A format and national payment rate charts make it easy for providers to understand the information needed to participate in risk-based contracting.”
