Chronic Care Management Q & A

What is chronic care management?

Medicare, the federal health insurance program for adults 65 and older, has a program called chronic care management (CCM) to help patients with multiple chronic diseases enjoy a better quality of life. 

Chronic care management gives you extra access to medical care, which allows you to monitor and manage your chronic conditions more effectively. 

Botany Wellness offers a streamlined approach to holistic health care, in which you’ll work with outstanding family medicine specialist Jennifer Ukwu, MD, to manage your chronic diseases through CCM. Chronic care management gives you a sturdy foundation to build better health from the ground up. 

Can I get chronic care management?

You can qualify for chronic care management if you’re currently enrolled in Medicare and have two or more chronic conditions estimated to continue for a year or longer. Most chronic conditions qualify, including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High cholesterol (hyperlipidemia)
  • Asthma
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Acid reflux
  • Allergies
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Liver disease
  • Anemia
  • Depression
  • Cancer

It’s important to know that these are only some of the chronic conditions that can be eligible for the CCM program through Medicare. Dr. Ukwu conducts a comprehensive health assessment and medical history review to determine whether you have conditions that can qualify you for CCM.
