Patient coordination of care and health management is critical in reducing total costs of care for patients with chronic health conditions while maintaining their overall health. Regular office visits to a primary care physician are an important step in the management of diseases and conditions. However, insurance companies have realized that additional physician supervision is required to meet the needs for preventive health measures to maintain a patient's current health status and prevent decline.
Chronic Care Management is one of the benefits that our Medicare patients enjoy to supplement their care. Patients receive a monthly virtual visit (non face to face) with regular monthly physician review of their records and contact efforts to provide the patient with the tools to partner with their physician to maintain their healthy initiatives.
Medicare beneficiaries with two or more chronic conditions can now benefit from our Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program. This program enhances opportunities for a patient and caregiver to communicate with the provider regarding the patient’s individualized care. The CCM team at Maryland Internal Medicine, Inc. is here to assist you with:
Preventive health services and tools
