Chronic Care Management

 

 

What is Chronic Care Management?

Chronic Care Management program is a service available through your provider that provides additional support and resources that have been proven to help patients manage their chronic conditions more effectively.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recognizes that CCM is a critical component of primary care that promotes better health and reduces overall health care costs.

If you have Medicare and live with two or more chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, depression, or high blood pressure, Medicare’s CCM program enables us to provide you with around the clock services to help manage and improve your overall wellness, so you can spend more time doing what you love.
