Chronic Care Management in Wichita, KS

What is Chronic Care Management?

Chronic Care Management (CCM) is coordinated care outside of regular office visits. A detailed personalized care plan is developed outlining how your care will be coordinated, your health goals, and challenges. We will assist with any barriers to obtaining medications, medical care or basic needs.

Consent: CCM requires informed written consent and cost-sharing. Patients should also understand that only one provider can deliver CCM services so they should only consent to one provider to provide services.

Cost Sharing: Patients with Medicare often have 20% responsibility for charges. That would be the same for this program. Patients with secondary insurance often have no out-of-pocket responsibility.
