The Chronic Care Management (CCM) program that went into effect on January 1, 2015 reimburses physicians approximately $40 per month for providing 20 minutes of non face to face patient management of chronic illness. There is an annual cap of $238K per physician per year. It is noteworthy that CMS is providing this reimbursement as physicians are already conducting chronic care management without reimbursement. The program allows physicians to create standardized programs that their staff can administer and it provides an "on ramp" to value based care. The requirements are not onerous but require integration with applications and workflow to create and manage each patient encounter.
