As of January 1, 2016 Medicare will be paying FQHC's for the Chronic Care Management Code 99490.  In a response to an inquiry from OACHC, we have just been informed that Ohio Medicaid and Medicaid Managed Care plans will pay FQHC's  for Chronic Care Management Code 99490. Similar to Medicare, since this is a new service not delivered face to face, this service is not covered under PPS.  The rate for 99490 is $32.81 to be billed no more than once a month.  We understand that a transmittal letter is under preparation to document that decision.  This document will be sent out to you when we receive it.
