In 2015, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services began reimbursing providers who actively managed care delivery for Medicare patients suffering from two or more chronic conditions. But the process can be cumbersome for providers and includes a considerable investment in resources.
Why Chronic Care Management?
- 75-85% of healthcare spending goes to the treatment of chronic illnesses.
- 2/3 of all Medicare dollars are spent on patients with five or more chronic conditions
- 7 of the top 10 causes of death are due to chronic conditions
- Medicare patients with chronic conditions are 98 times more likely to be hospitalized than those with not chronic illnesses
