Chronic Care Management at a Glance

117 million Americans have one or more chronic health conditions.
2/3 of Medicare beneficiaries have 2 or more chronic conditions.

Patients with multiple chronic conditions often visit multiple providers in
different organizations, leading to duplication and conflicts in Care Plans.

Medicare began allowing physicians to bill for chronic care management
(CCM) in 2015.

CMS specifies that the code must be billed for “non-face-to-face follow-up
care outside the office” each month.


Understanding the Requirements of Code 99490

This code is specific to Chronic Care Management and is the reimbursement of chronic care services for patients with:

Two or more chronic conditions

To be reimbursed for such care, practices must:

Contact each eligible patient every month.


Conduct at least 20 minutes of non-face-to-face care.


Establish, implement, revise or monitor a comprehensive care plan.
