Chronic Care Management Services

If you have 2 or more chronic conditions that are expected to last at least a year, Medicare may pay for a health care provider’s help to manage those conditions.

This includes a comprehensive care plan that lists your health problems and goals, other health care providers, medications, community services you have and need, and other information about your health. It also explains the care you need and how your care will be coordinated. A chronic condition could be arthritis, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, and other conditions. Your health care provider will ask you to sign an agreement to provide this service. If you agree, he or she will prepare the care plan, help you with medication management, provide 24/7 access for urgent care needs, give you support when you go from one health care setting to another, review your medicines and how you take them, and help you with other chronic care needs. There’s a monthly fee, and the Part B deductible and coinsurance apply.
