Meet your CCM Guidelines for Reimbursement with Veritas’ Care Managers

As the aging population in the United States continues to grow and enter into the Medicare space, CMS has developed programs in concert with the changes and initiatives brought on by the value based healthcare era. Recognizing that comprehensive care plan coordination and care management is a continuous process that occurs beyond the bricks and mortar structures of hospitals and physician’s offices, CMS is now allowing physicians to receive monthly reimbursement for Chronic Care Management services under code 99490. Veritas’ turnkey, patient-centric CCM solution is headed by a team of care managers that are trained and ready to address your practice’s needs in order to meet CMS requirements for reimbursement of Chronic Case Management (CCM) services. By utilizing your practice’s established electronic health record, Veritas can extract the necessary CCDA clinical summary to act as the foundation to develop a customized care plan to meet your patient’s needs.
