DOES IT COST ANYTHING TO PARTICIPATE?
Once the patient deductible is met, Medi-care Part B covers this service at 80%, just as they would cover any face-to-face visit in the office.
Most supplemental policies cover the remaining cost. For those with participating secondary insurance policies, once the Medicare deductible is met, this program is available at no cost.
Patients without a supplemental policy, or who have a secondary insurance policy that does not cover CCM, would be billed their 20% coinsurance cost.
