Why Choose HealthViewX’s Principal Care Management:

With HealthViewX PCM platform, generate pre-built care plans automatically based on the chronic condition mapped in the EHR and individual patient needs to prevent hospitalization and improve quality measures.

Automatically identify eligible patients, enroll, document medications, capture accurate time spent with patients, generate billing reports based on CMS guidelines for guaranteed reimbursement. Providing PCM services traditionally with just the EHR or with Excel files is simply too much of a hassle.

  • Reduced hospital/ER admissions

  • Improved patient health awareness

  • Reduced unnecessary patient visits

  • Increased services reimbursements

  • Improved patient satisfaction/outcome

  • Reduced patient healthcare costs

Eligibility Criteria for Patients:

Patients covered by PCM codes must meet the following criteria defined by CMS:

  • 1

    They have one complex chronic condition expected to last between three months and a year, or until the death of the patient.
  • 2

    The condition is severe enough that the patient is at risk for hospitalization or was recently hospitalized due to the condition.
  • 3

    The condition requires development or revision of a disease-specific care plan.
  • 4

    The condition requires frequent adjustments in the medication regimen, and/or the management of the condition is unusually complex due to comorbidities.

Chronic diseases are responsible for 7 out of every 10 deaths in the U.S., killing more than 1.7 million Americans every year

Concurrent Billing with Other Services (RPM) and (CCM):

HealthViewX platform helps providers provide care management services simultaneously for Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), Chronic Care Management (for different patients) (CCM), and Virtual Visits.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced Principal Care Management (PCM) to cover patients with a single serious chronic condition. This enables care management for patients who don’t qualify for CCM’s 2-condition requirement.

  • Remote Patient Monitoring can be billed concurrently with principal care management as long as the time is not counted twice.

  • Chronic Care Management cannot be billed concurrently with principal care management by the same billing practitioner.

Medicare Principal Care Management (PCM) Reimbursement Codes:

The billing practitioner must be a physician or a qualified health care practitioner (QHCP). FQHCs/RHCs may bill for the PCM services under the G0511 care management code.

Medicare Reimbursement Code Description Average Reimbursement / Month Minimum Service Time / Month
CPT 99424 The first 30 mins are provided personally by a physician or other QHCP $81/patient/month 30 Min
CPT 99425 For each additional 30 mins provided personally by a physician or other QHCP $58/patient/month 30 Min
CPT 99426 The first 30 mins of clinical staff time directed by the physician $61/Patient/month 30 Min
CPT 99427 For each additional 30 mins of clinical staff time directed by the physician $47/patient/month 30 Min

*The 30 minutes of provider/clinical staff time does not have to be face-to-face time, but can be time used to create care plans, follow up with patients via phone, etc.
