Medscape has this happy news:

“The new rule from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) allowing reimbursement for chronic care management (CCM) is a huge change that could create much more revenue for many physicians—enabling some practices to get paid for work they’re already doing, and others to add services that will increase their revenue and improve patient care.

“This means that making phone calls, helping patients fill out insurance forms, consulting with patients about medication over the phone, and taking calls from patients during evenings or weekends may all count toward billable activities, under the CCM code (99490) that went into effect on January 1, 2015.”
