Your doctor may recommend that you enroll in the Chronic Care Management program at your clinic visit. However, you may also request to be enrolled at any time, as long as you have seen a CIS physician within one year. The CCM team will evaluate whether you qualify for the program. If you qualify, you will be asked to give written or verbal consent. Next, an initial visit will be scheduled to discuss the program and answer any questions you may have.
WHO CAN BE ENROLLED IN CHRONIC CARE MANAGEMENT?
All Medicare patients with two or more chronic conditions can be enrolled.
These conditions may include, but are not limited to:
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Coronary Artery Disease
- Heart Failure
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- Peripheral Artery Disease
*Ask your physician or nurse if you qualify
AFTER I ENROLL, CAN I CHOOSE NOT TO PARTICIPATE?
Yes, all enrolled patients have the option to withdraw from the program at any time. Once you withdraw from the program, you will no longer receive communication or be managed by the CCM team.
IS THERE A COST?
Yes, depending on your insurance coverage, you may have a small monthly fee to be enrolled in the program. But keep in mind that this small monthly fee can reduce your need for regular visit co-pays or emergency room visits, while adding the convenience of managing your care from home.
