Managing your health can be overwhelming, specially with multiple chronic conditions and many medications. The Chronic Care Management program is designed to help you stay on top of that with the help of medical experts and your own doctors.
You certainly can. However, doctors have limited resources and many patients to manage. That means higher every time you contact your doctor directly, your healthcare cost can continue to go higher. In addition to that, it might not be easy to speak to your doctor or nurses frequently. With the CCM program, you get access to a dedicated wellness coordinator that can take care of all your needs, without you having to wait on hold to speak with your doctor.
CCM services are covered by Medicare and most secondary insurances. That means if you have Medicare, and a secondary (or supplement) plan, you can enroll at no cost.
If you don't have a secondary insurance, you might have to pay a copay (around $8). You can contact your insurance or doctor's office to make sure you will not have a copay.
You can enroll in the Chronic Care Management simply by calling your doctors office or our wellness coordinators.
