Eligibility Criteria for Patients:
Patients covered by PCM codes must meet the following criteria defined by CMS:
1They have one complex chronic condition expected to last between three months and a year, or until the death of the patient.
2The condition is severe enough that the patient is at risk for hospitalization or was recently hospitalized due to the condition.
3The condition requires development or revision of a disease-specific care plan.
4The condition requires frequent adjustments in the medication regimen, and/or the management of the condition is unusually complex due to comorbidities.
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.
* 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.
