Chronic Care Management Q & A

Do I qualify for chronic care management?

Chronic care management (CCM) is a personalized approach to health care where your doctor helps you improve your health by offering expanded screenings, as well as customized treatments and lifestyle change solutions. You may qualify for chronic care management if you have:

  • Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
  • Cardiovascular disease 
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hypertension 
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma 
  • Cancer 

Chronic care management may also be necessary if you have HIV or AIDS. These are just some of the examples of conditions that qualify for chronic care management. 

What is involved with chronic care management?

Calvary Medical Clinic can help you throughout every step of the chronic care management process. To get started with CCM, you need to schedule an initial evaluation with your doctor. During this visit, your doctor performs extensive assessments and diagnostic testing, in addition to evaluating your previous medical records.

Throughout your chronic care management plan, your doctor puts together structured recordings of your diagnostic testing and evaluations. They make detailed plans about health goals they want you to achieve — like lowering your blood pressure — and help you achieve those health markers over time. 

Your chronic care management plan from Calvary Medical Clinic may include:

  • Exercise planning
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Weight loss management 
  • Expanded laboratory testing
  • More frequent physical exams
  • Prescription medication management

With chronic care management, you also have 24/7 access to care, so you can contact your doctor when you need them the most. 

How long do I need chronic care management?

The goal of your chronic care management plan with Calvary Medical Clinic is to improve your health. Your condition may improve over time, and you may no longer need chronic care management, which is common with reversible conditions, such as high blood pressure.

But if you have a lifelong ailment, such as HIV or AIDS, you may need chronic care management for life. In any case, the compassionate team at Calvary Medical Clinic is available to help you.
