What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management is a benefit under Medicare designed to increase patient access to timely and effective medical care. This type of medical management protects your health and helps you avoid the disruption and high costs of ER visits and frequent hospital stays.

This program gives you virtual access to a trained medical professional 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can also expect check-ins by phone and monthly reviews.

What can I expect from chronic care management?

The team at MEDI Care Clinics begins by thoroughly evaluating your condition, medical history, and lifestyle. This enables them to create a comprehensive treatment plan.

Chronic care management is similar to a concierge medicine service, giving you constant access to a staff member who will:

  • Answer any questions you may have
  • Track your medical issues and coordinate your care
  • Ensure you receive resources to prevent future issues
  • Coordinate any necessary specialist referrals and follow up after ER or hospital visits
  • Coordinate with service providers
  • Provide preventive health counseling

They can also advise you on how to adapt your environment around your chronic condition, such as helping you reduce risk factors for falls or letting you know what assistive devices can keep you mobile.

The team helps you fully understand your chronic disease so you can keep your symptoms controlled, prevent adverse effects over time, and protect your quality of life.
