I hope you had a great THANKSGIVING with family and/or friends. We're less than 5 weeks away from 2017 and MACRA/MIPS and the amount of misinformation about it is astounding. Seriously, people! If you are following my advice on chronic care management and annual wellness visits - then you are already 3/4 done with getting ready for MACRA.
Oh yeah - I am NOT a proponent of achieving MACRA through the APM route. You'll be limited to 5% and too many will not make it. It's much easier and more certain if you go MIPS - so feel free to ask us a out it.
By the way - next year, we're thinking seriously of taking a 4 month trip up to Alaska and back, in the RV. If you're on the way or in Alaska.... <grin>

We're also super busy signing up clients to perform CCM since the money is so darn good without the clinics having to hire nurses as CareSync does all the work.
CHRONIC CARE MANAGEMENT can increase the monthly NET profit of most solo primary care practices easily by $4,000 to $16,000 per month without:
1. The doctor doing anything
2. The staff doing anything
If your practice has 500 active Medicare patients, you're looking at $4,000 per month. If you have 900, you're looking at $7500 per month or $90,000 per year by doing what Medicare wants you to do.
Yes - this is possible since CMS gave permission for physicians to have an outside service provideR. In fact, here is what CMS has on their website "A billing physician (or other appropriate practitioner) may arrange to have CCM services provided by clinical staff external to the practice (for example, in a case management company) if all of the “incident to” and other rules for billing CCM to the PFS are met. " Note that in the same article, Medicare explains that the incident-to rules for CCM services are "general supervision".
Don Self & Associates has teamed up with a company that provides this currently for more than 100,000 Medicare patient lives in the country. Schedule a 15 minute phone call with Don to discuss this option. Again - the physician has to do nothing and the office staff also has to do nothing to see this improvement in patient care and the profitability is fantastic. Call 903 871-1172 now to schedule a time to talk to Don!
