Coordinated Care Management
We know managing your healthcare needs can be complicated. It doesn’t have to be.
Coordinated Care Management is a new program offered by Medicare. The program has two aspects – Principal Care Management (PCM) and Chronic Care Management (CCM).
Principal Care Management supports Medicare patient living with one chronic condition.
Chronic Care Management supports Medicare patients living with more than one chronic condition.
Chronic conditions include, but not limited to, urinary retention, arthritis, diabetes, depression, and/or high blood pressure. The program extends your care outside the four walls of our practice to ensure you maintain the best possible health.
We have partnered with CareHarmony to provide this extension of the UAPC clinical team.
Each month your CareHarmony Care Coordinator will call you to:
- Assist with scheduling appointments and ordered tests.
- Explain how and when to take your medications.
- Coordinate any home health or medical equipment needs.
- Connect you with health education resources, services, and programs.
- Identify available community resources.
- Coordinate follow-up care after leaving the hospital.
- Access other support services you need to stay well.
In addition, CareHarmony provides a 24/7 Care Coordinator phone line to help answer any questions you have day or night, outside of your calls with your Care Coordinator.
Cost and Coverage
Like most Medicare programs, Chronic Care Management is subject to the standard Part B cost sharing (deductible and copayment/coinsurance). Many supplemental insurance plans will cover the coinsurance payments, resulting in no out-of-pocket expense.
