Recently, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) made some changes and additions to coding for care management services.
- Beginning in 2022, Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) can bill Chronic Care Management (CCM) and Transitional Care Management (TCM) services for the same patient during the same time period.
- 5 codes were added in 2021 to report staff-provided Principal Care Management (PCM) services under physician or non-physician provider supervision.
- Beginning in 2022, the code G2058 was replaced with 99439 ("Chronic care management services, each additional 20 minutes of clinical staff time directed by a physician or other qualified health care professional, per calendar month")
