Chronic Care Management, Inc. offers a comprehensive behavioral health integration platform that supports individuals with behavioral health conditions, developmental disabilities and drug addiction. The new platform harnesses Medicare’s new Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) program to systematize structured outcome assessment tools, care gap identification, community resource need matching and other areas that have not been formally operationalized to date in the U.S. healthcare system.
The new Medicare BHI program is reimbursed at a national reimbursement rate of $48.60 per qualifying patient per month. The program is used to support patients in-between their visits with practitioners who are treating patients with conditions such as mood and anxiety disorders, cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s and other dementias, psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia as well as people with variety of addictions – including drug and alcohol addiction. The new benefit fosters goal-directed, comprehensive care planning, care coordination and monitoring by the care team, with an overall aim of fostering a continuous relationship between the patient and the care team.
Dr. William Mills, President and CEO of Chronic Care Management, Inc. said, “Medicare continues to show that it is dedicated to providing support for people with chronic medical and behavioral conditions in-between their provider visits. With the BHI program, it is providing a layer of support that did not previously exist for patients afflicted by a variety of psychiatric, behavioral, developmental and addition disorders – including program features that can help people dealing with opioid addition. We are thrilled to be able to offer our state-of-the art care management technology and clinically-integrated staff services as a behavioral health integration platform to healthcare organizations across the U.S. to better support quality care of these individuals in need.”
