Medicare Psychiatric CoCM Program

CoCM enables a holistic team-based approach to treating common mental health conditions by integrating behavioral health professionals into the care team, while simultaneously increasing the confidence and competence of physical health providers in treating these disorders.

  • The program typically is provided by a primary care team consisting of a primary care physician and a care manager who work in collaboration with a psychiatric consultant, such as a psychiatrist.
  • Care is directed by the primary care team and includes structured care management with regular assessments of clinical status using validated tools and modification of treatment as appropriate.
  • The psychiatric consultant provides regular consultations with the primary care team to review the clinical status and care of patients and to make recommendations.

How Psychiatric CoCM Works:

Medicare CoCM Services for behavioral health conditions include

  • The primary care provider determines whether the patient should be enrolled in collaborative care based on behavioral health symptoms, medication needs, or the patient’s level of support.
  • The PCP then introduces the patient to the BHCM who will conduct regular, brief interventions with the patients. These interventions include conducting validated assessments like the PHQ-9 for depression or GAD-7 for anxiety as well as evidence-based therapies like cognitive-based therapy (CBT).
  • In addition to communicating with the PCP and patient regularly, the BHCM also works with a psychiatric consultant to determine prescription needs and adjust the care plan based on patient outcomes.
  • The care manager and psychiatric consult collaborate through a patient registry to effectively manage the patient caseload and monitor the population.
