Chronic Care Management During COVID-19
Posted on: April 3, 2020
During this unprecedented time, it is more important than ever to manage any chronic care conditions you may have. For those who are covered by Traditional Medicare Coverage, you are entitled to receive Chronic Care Management services, allowing your medical provider to provide more services for you in-between visits. Through this service, South Central Chronic Care Management Team is available to answer your questions 24/7 with our Nurse Advice Line.
Medicare Chronic Care Management Patients are provided a variety of services through this program such as:
- Extensive care coordination means that your healthcare is coordinated between your primary care provider and other providers such as medical specialists, pharmacies, laboratories and others. These providers work together to communicate your healthcare effectively and efficiently. This allows for accurate medications and dosages based on your need.
- South Central’s Chronic Care Management team creates personalized care plans and provides one-on-one phone sessions with the patient and nursing staff to assist with reviewing and understanding medications and providing individualized education for each of the patient’s chronic conditions.
- Chronic care management also provides 24/7 access to healthcare professionals whenever you need assistance.
- The team will also work together to review your medical records on a regular basis and make sure you receive all recommended preventative services and screenings.
South Central’s Chronic Care Management team is here to help by coordinating care and helping you receive the services you need. The primary care providers within South Central Clinics believe this service is very important for each of their patients’ health and would like all eligible patients to participate. To learn more on how to enroll, please contact your South Central primary care provider and ask for chronic care enrollment. Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. This program is provided for Traditional Medicare Beneficiaries only.
