Chronic Care Management Q & A

What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management is the ongoing medical monitoring and support you need to manage your chronic health condition outside of the doctor’s office. It’s one of the covered benefits for people with Medicare Part B, which is the federal health insurance program that helps pay for medical services outside the hospital like visits to the doctor’s office. 


Chronic health conditions are medical issues that last a year or more and affect your normal life. When left untreated, chronic diseases may lead to other health problems.


Chronic care management helps you manage your long-term illness, preventing or delaying complications.

Who qualifies for chronic care management?

If you have two or more chronic diseases, like diabetes and high blood pressure, and have Medicare Part B health insurance, then you might qualify for chronic care management. 


With chronic care management, Medicare Part B may pay for the services you need to help you manage your chronic illnesses outside of your usual visits to the office.
