NEW CODE G0511 HELPS EXPAND CHRONIC CARE MANAGEMENT AT FQHCS
As QPP and MIPS become the standard for the majority of Medicare providers, expansion of programs into Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) is necessary. However, FQHCs are not like other providers. They have a high percentage of Medicaid patients and a completely different pay structure. How then, can FQHCs implement quality initiatives, like Chronic Care Management (ccp)? Through creating a new code, G0511, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has enabled FQHCs to offer ccp on a much larger scale.
