Beginning in 2015, physicians and other qualified health care professionals will be able to separately bill Medicare for providing non-face-to-face chronic care management services by billing CPT code 99490.

As detailed below, CCM payments will potentially be available to eligible providers for furnishing at least 20 minutes of non-face-to-face services to qualified beneficiaries during a calendar month.
