Chronic Care Management (CCM) – Program for Medicare Patients

Offered at Valley Health – HuntingtonWestmorelandTeays ValleyHartsHurricaneMiltonEast HuntingtonWayneUpper KanawhaFort Gay, and Stepptown CCM provides Medicare patients individualized care designed to improve health and reduce spending for individuals with two or more chronic health conditions.

Examples of Chronic Conditions: Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia; Arthritis (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid); Asthma; Atrial fibrillation; Autism spectrum disorders; Cancer; Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); Depression; Diabetes; Heart failure; Hypertension; Ischemic heart disease; Osteoporosis

Our goal is to make sure you get the best care possible. We can help coordinate your visits with other doctors, facilities, lab, radiology or other testing; we can talk to you on the phone about your symptoms; we can help you with the management of your medications; and we will provide you with a comprehensive care plan. A nurse will be assigned to guide you through your care process. This same nurse will routinely contact you and be involved with all aspects of your health treatment.

Medicare covers most costs of CCM. Talk with your insurance company directly to find out what your co-payment will be.
