To qualify for CCM enrollment you must have:
- 2 or more chronic conditions
- CCM is covered by Medicare. For benefits coverage outside of Medicare, inquire with your insurance carrier.
How the Program Works
You will work with our clinic team members on a regular basis, in between your regularly scheduled visits with your doctor, to create personalized care plans reflecting health goals important to you.
Topics you will likely discuss include lifestyle changes, reviewing medications and care instructions, introduction to community resources, addressing barriers preventing you from achieving your goals, and coordination of care.
Here at Summit Healthcare Chronic Care Management we believe that by using our entire team to care for our patients, we provide a more holistic and personalized approach to treatment in chronic conditions. By providing these visits in between you between visits with your doctor, CCM will enable us to create a tailored care plan that changes as frequently as you need.
What Are Chronic Conditions?
Chronic conditions, or chronic diseases, are medical diagnoses that are long-lasting. The word “chronic” is used when the disease or condition lasts for one year or more. Chronic diseases require frequent medical attention and are very common. Six out of ten adults in the United States have a chronic disease, and four out of ten adults have two or more chronic diseases.
Examples of Chronic Disease Diagnoses
Some of the most common chronic disease diagnoses include (but are not limited to):
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Heart Disease
