What is Chronic Care Management?
Chronic Care Management is designed to help connect patients to the many resources they need to manage their health. If you have Medicare and live with two or more chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, depression or high blood pressure, then this program is perfect for you.
To get started, you will need to be an established patient having your primary care provider at Meeker Family Health Center. This will ensure that all your information and medical history is up to date. Once you are enrolled in the program you will find that you have great access to coaching and care resources.
- 24-7 access to care, including telephone, and other non-face-to-face means of communications (emails, or web-based tools)
- Scheduled routing appointment with your regular primary care provider and care team to create your personalized care plan
- Coordination of care for prescription refills, medication reconciliation, and medication management
- Management of care as you navigate between various care providers and specialists or healthcare facilities.
For more information about this program call Janelle Borchard, RN at 970-878-9382
What if I am not on Medicare?
If you are over age 65 years, or have been eligible for Social Security disability benefits for at least 24 months, then you may be eligible for Medicare.
You can enroll in Medicare Part A and/or Medicare Part B in the following ways:
- Online at Social Security (SSA);
- By calling Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY users 1-800-325-0778), Monday through Friday, from 7AM to 7PM.
Once enrolled in Medicare Part B you will have up to 12-months from enrollment to have your “Welcome to Medicare” preventative visit. This is similar to an annual physical and will help to make sure your medical records, family history, prescriptions are accurate.
