2006 – Optimizing Care Coordination with Chronic Care Management Services and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Resources
Coordinated Care for Medicare patients with two or more chronic conditions is a critical component of primary care that contributes to better health and care for individuals. Certified Case Managers, highly skilled in this area, are uniquely qualified to provide and support such coordination activities in practice. This session explores CMS’ Chronic Care Management Services Connected Care Initiative with emphasis on available tools and resources, operationalizing, and billing for these activities in clinical settings. The second half of the program will explore CMS’ free resources, available in multiple formats, to help you find answers to your Medicare questions, care for and educate your patients, prepare presentations, and more. Bring your smart devices and join as we explore together.
