1st Talk Compliance
Show rebroadcasts at 7:30 am, 3:30 pm and 11:30 pm ET every weekday.
Host Catherine Short speaks with a St. Louis healthcare attorney, Markus P. Cicka, J.D., LL.M. about “Billing for Chronic Care Management: What Are the Problematic Issues?” Beginning in 2015, CMS allowed Medicare payments to providers under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) for chronic care management (CCM) in certain situations. Prior to 2015, physicians could not bill separately for typical non-face-to-face care management services in these situations. While the implementation of a CMS policy for CCM payments should be applauded, healthcare providers billing for CCM should be aware of certain issues recently flagged by the OIG. We discuss what is chronic care management, having an understanding of who exactly can bill for providing chronic care management services, and discover what recent chronic care management billing issues have been flagged by the OIG.
