4 CCM PROGRAM OVERVIEW: In January 2015 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced a new procedure code for care coordination involving chronically ill patients. CMS announced it would pay providers who could demonstrate a minimum amount of time (20 minutes) spent each month on non-face-toface activities of chronic care management (CCM) performed by clinical staff. Eligible patients include Medicare beneficiaries with at least two chronic conditions. Chronic is defined by CMS as 1) expected to last at least 12 months (or until the death of the patient), and 2) causing an increased risk of death, acute exacerbation/decompensation or functional decline. CMS has resisted providing a list of acceptable diagnoses, preferring to let doctors, based on the CMS definition, decide which conditions are chronic for their patients. CMS reimburses providers for CCM at an average rate of $40 per month for each patient on whose behalf the required 20 minutes have been documented. Since each primary care provider has an average of 500 Medicare patients in their practice, and two thirds of Medicare patients are expected to have at least two chronic conditions, this can add up to a significant monthly amount when CCM is performed routinely for all eligible patients. Dulcian Health s CCM Solution for athenaclinicals provides the tools needed to easily capture all clinical staff time needed for CCM documentation. Working seamlessly with athenanet, Dulcian Health allows accurate and easily measured time keeping, plus an electronic care plan which both satisfies all CMS requirements for CCM and provides an ongoing record of the patient s chronic care management. The product includes a reporting feature that presents a breakdown of time spent per month on each patient and an administrative area where users may be added or assigned practicespecific roles. And the Dulcian Health medical portal satisfies CMS requirements for care plan availability to the patient, as well as all members of the care team, allowing secure 24/7 access via username and password.

5 3 STEPS TO BEGIN CCM: Providers and Clinical Staff can begin recording CCM time after 3 simple steps: 1. Identify the patient 2. Obtain informed consent 3. Enroll patient in CCM Identify the Patient as having 2 or more chronic conditions expected to last at least 12 months, or until the death of the patient. Confirm the diagnosis are flagged as chronic in AthenaNet. Obtain Informed Consent You must inform the patient about the CCM program during a face to face visit and document the briefing in the encounter note for that visit. It is recommended the face to face briefing occurs during the Welcome to Medicare visit, Annual Wellness Visit, or a comprehensive E&M visit. Ensure patient signs the informed consent and scan to patient chart. Consent includes any expected deductible, co-pay, or co-ins the patient would be responsible for. Enroll patient in AthenaNet In the quickview page, in the Medicare insurance section, set the CCM Enrollment Status to Enrolled. If you are enrolling a Medicare Advantage or Private Insurance patient, you need to set the custom CCM Enrolled-Medicare Advantage/Private Insurance status field in Registration Information section of the quickview (right column adjacent to Patient photo). The timer will only pop up for patients that have the CCM Enrollment Status set to Enrolled in either of the two CCM Enrollment status fields. o For a Video Tutorial on How to Change CCM Enrollment Status in AthenaNet visit
6 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: What is CCM? CCM is Chronic Care Management services provided to eligible Medicare patients on a monthly basis. It includes management and support services for all medical conditions, coordinating the care of other professionals and agencies, and the creation and maintenance of a patient-centered care plan. What constitutes a chronic condition? There is no comprehensive list of conditions. CMS has resisted providing a list of acceptable diagnoses, preferring to let doctors, based on the CMS definition, decide which conditions are chronic for their patients. Here are a few examples of a provider may consider a chronic condition: Examples: Alzheimer s disease and related dementia; Arthritis (osteoarthritis & rheumatoid); Asthma; Atrial fibrillation; Autism spectrum disorders; Cancer; COPD; Depression; Diabetes; Heart failure; Hypertension; Ischemic heart disease; Osteoporosis. Who can do CCM? CCM may be performed by clinical staff under the general supervision of a Physician, Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Nurse Specialist, or Certified Nurse Midwife. Alternatively, the service may be performed by Dulcian Health s outsourcing department. What is the benefit of CCM? Patients have improvement in their health and a corresponding increase in quality of life when care management services are performed. Long-term care and hospitalization costs are reduced. Providers obtain reimbursement for care management work done by clinical staff. Who may bill for CCM? Only one provider may bill for CCM per month. The billing provider must obtain signed consent from the patient prior to billing. What is the reimbursement for CCM? Currently the average reimbursement for CCM is $40 for each month in which the service is provided and billed. What is a care plan? A patient-centered care plan is a comprehensive plan of care for all problems, based on a physical, mental, cognitive, social, functional, and environmental assessment. It typically includes a problem list, expected outcome and prognosis, measurable treatment goals, symptom management, planned interventions, medications, and other elements of care coordination as well as requirements for periodic review. Can services be provided without the Consent Form? The patient must sign a CCM consent form. The completed consent form is to be scanned and filed to the patient chart. The patient does not need to sign the form at the time of the informed consent nor do they need to do it in the presence of the practice staff. The form can be completed at home and sent back to the practice.

33 STEP-BY-STEP DOCUMENTS & VIDEOS, Continued: How to Approve Claims Version 1.2, Updated: August 14, 2017 Overview: Chronic Care Management (CCM) falls into two categories, non-complex or complex. For complex CCM, Medicare and CPT rules require at least 60 minutes of non-face-to-face clinical staff time for each month of service. Providers billing for complex CCM must assert that care of the patient involves either a moderate or high degree of medical decision making, and that the Care Plan has been substantially modified every month the service is billed. This document explains how to use the Claim Approval application to update Care Plans, and to review, edit, and approve claims for noncomplex and complex CCM. Approve Claims Video Tutorial visit 1. Right click the Dulcian Health menu icon, circled below. Scroll to Tools, and select Claim Approval, shown below. Note: only users whose Role in the Practice Management screen, in the Timer Activities/Role Settings area, has the Access to Claims Approval box checked, may select this option. Please see Dulcian Health s CCM Solution: How to use the Practice Management Application for details. The Claim Approval window expands.
34 2. Click the Usual Provider checkbox and select the provider from the drop down list. Then click the Show Claims button. The resulting list displays all claims associated with the selected provider. The example above shows a practice with Claims Processing settings which select using the Claims Approval app for both non-complex and complex CCM, seen above in yellow. This means all CCM patients with a minimum of 20 minutes will appear in the screen. To change practice settings for the Claims Approval application, contact the MSPB Helpdesk. These functions are covered in the Dulcian Health s CCM Solution: How to Use the Practice Management Application, which requires Administrative-level access. 3. Users may refine the list by selecting a different claim month and year. For practices with multiple departments, select the department from the drop down list. Click the Show Claims button after making each selection. Uncheck the Only show claims pending approval box to display all claims regardless of approval status, then click the Show Claims button. Click the Show Patients I have worked on to display patients for whom the user has logged time. Claim Month is indicated on the left column. Usual Provider displays the provider name found in the patient s chart on Quickview. The Provider Mins column sums the number of minutes logged by all users having the Role of Provider in the Practice Management application. Total Mins is the total time logged by all users, all roles, for the claim month. Other columns include Patient ID, Patient Name, Medical Complexity, Care Plan Modified, CPT Code, Approve, Clam Dropped, Edit Claim, and Navigate to Chart. 4. Once the display settings are selected, click on any patient row to select the patient. The row will highlight in white, and the CCM Activity table, at the bottom of the screen, will populate with the patient s data for the claim month. Note the Care Plan sections underlined in blue in the middle of the screen starting with Vitals. Each section may be clicked to access that part of the Care Plan.
35 In the example below, the user has clicked on Problems and selected Osteoporosis from the patient s current Problem list. 5. Since Care Plan review and update is a CCM activity, clicking a Care Plan section will start the Timer. Use the buttons on the right to Cancel, Pause, or Stop the Timer. Time logged will be added to the patient s CCM total for the current month. 6. When finished updating the Care Plan, the user is ready to approve the CCM claim. Click the clipboard icon at the end of the patient row, under the Edit Claim column, shown below. The Claim Detail window expands. Patient ID number, name, Usual Provider, and number of logged minutes appears on the left under the Patient Data column. The claim month, CPT code, and approval status is on the right under the Claim Data column. If the total number of minutes is less than 60, only CPT for non-complex CCM may be selected, shown below.
36 7. At the bottom of the screen the Chronic Conditions are listed with corresponding IDC10 code. Select which Problems qualify the patient for CCM by checking the CCM Enabling checkbox to the right. Dulcian Health will use CCM Enabling diagnoses to submit CCM claims. 8. Select medical complexity in the drop down list. Although checking the box to assert the Care Plan has been modified is necessary for complex CCM, it is not required for non-complex CCM. When ready to approve, select Yes from the drop down next to Approve. Then click Done. Once approved, the claim can no longer be edited. For complex CCM, medical complexity must be set to either Moderate or High. CPT 99487/89 for complex CCM will display only when the patient has logged over 60 minutes.
37 9. If desired, click the green Chart button in the Navigate to Chart column shown below. This will open the patient s athenanet chart while minimizing the Claim Approval window. Click on the minimized window to restore it to normal size. 10. Dulcian Health will automatically submit claims with an Approve status of Yes. Claim submission will occur on the date when all claims are dropped for the month. Claims with an Approve status of No, or with an empty Approve status, will not be dropped in athenanet. 11. Exit the Claim Approval application at any time by clicking on the green X at the upper right. All claims information is automatically stored securely.
