Medicare & Chronic Care Management
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recognize the importance of chronic care management. According to CMS, more than two-thirds of beneficiaries have two chronic conditions, and nearly 14% have more than six chronic conditions.
Patients with two or more chronic health conditions need chronic care services. Chronic care services help beneficiaries with a higher risk of decline or death due to their conditions.
Who Qualifies for Chronic Care Management?
You must be eligible for Medicare to have the federal program cover your Chronic Care Management. Otherwise, you’ll need to consult your health plan for your options.
You’re eligible for Medicare’s Chronic Care Management Services if you suffer from two or more chronic conditions. These conditions must be expected to last at least 12 months or until the death of the patient.
Also, if you’re eligible, you should take advantage of the benefits Medicare has to offer. When you have chronic issues, the more care you have, the less likely complications will arise.
