Connect Care Plus Supports Elimination of CCM Patient Responsibility
With over four years of enrolling patients in Chronic Care Management, our experience at Connect Care Plus supports these findings. We also see that potential participants frequently decline enrollment after learning of the cost. While Connect Care Plus achieves high rates of enrollment, we agree with other supporters that patient responsibility limits participation. Unfortunately, the savings of the program is not visible to the patients, as their main concern is focused on what comes out of their pockets each month.
This cost to the patient hides the overall savings to Medicare and participating provider groups. Nationally, Medicare savings per member per month are up to $74 after 18-months of enrollment. As the leading provider of CCM to ACOs across the nation, our clients report savings even higher than the national average. By lowering barriers to participation, Medicare and participating providers will actually increase their savings per patient enrolled.
