A Better You - Chronic Care Management Program

“A Better You” is a new model of care designed to improve the coordination of your health care with an emphasis on your overall well-being. Perry believes this goal can be achieved together through a partnership between the patient and their medical provider. By remaining involved in the decisions regarding your health, health care and lifestyle, together we can develop a stronger health relationship with you.

Helping you manage your chronic diseases.

Services include:

  • Scheduled “check-ins” with a nurse
  • Medication management
  • Assistance with community resources

"A Better You" is part of Medicare's objective to help people receive more goal-directed, holistic care planning and in-between visit care. The program can help your doctor and practice staff provide you with a comprehensive care plan and enhance engagement with your care. Throughout the month, your Care Team Coordinator will call you to track your progress.  If you have any new concerns or issues, you can address them with your care team at any time.

How do I qualify for the "A Better You" program?

Medicare patients with two or more chronic conditions are eligible for the chronic care program. Your doctor will determine if your conditions qualify you. Examples of common chronic conditions are: hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, chronic kidney disease, COPD, asthma, osteoporosis, ischemia heart disease, atrial fibrillation, stroke, anemia, cancer, depression, Alzheimer's disease and related dementia.

If you have two or more chronic conditions, your doctor will likely encourage you to participate.  If you are interested, please contact your provider.

Will I be charged for the CCM Service?

You may be charged a nominal copay for this service. If you have coinsurance, supplemental insurance or Medicaid, the copay may be covered. Our office will bill Medicare for the Chronic Care Management services once a month.  Although you may not be in the office every month, your account will reflect this charge and you will be responsible for any copay that is not covered by your insurance(s).

How do I join "A Better You"?

We must obtain your consent to enroll you in this program. Our office will provide you with an agreement to sign. This agreement includes your authorization for electronic communications of medical information with other treating physicians or providers. You can cancel your CCM agreement at any time. This can be done in writing at our office.
