Dorland Health recently hosted a webinar entitled Newsflash: CMS Now Reimbursing for Care Coordination Webinar. Cynthia Young was one of four panel experts who presented the advantages of the new TCM codes, which became effective January 1, 2013. Cynthia spoke from the perspective of the advantages to a physician's practice. Transitional Care Management Services (TCM) is the transition from an inpatient hospital setting (including acute hospital, rehabilitation hospital, long-term acute care hospital), partial hospital, observation status in a hospital, or skilled nursing facility, to the patient's community setting (home, domiciliary, rest home, or assisted living) in order to prevent re-admissions. They involve one office visit, plus care coordination, in the 30-day transition period when certain patients are discharged from an inpatient hospital or nursing facility to their home, community setting, or assisted living facility. The webinar explained the new codes, provided insight as to who can bill for the new codes, which patients are eligible, and when they should be billed. Care coordination has been an important aspect of healthcare, but up until January 1, 2013, these services were not eligible for reimbursement.
