What is Chronic Care Management?
Chronic Care Management is a Medicare sponsored program that allows your Cooperative Health primary care clinician and team to monitor your health between office visits. Participation will help your clinician stay up-to-date on all aspects of your health. The goal is to keep you healthy!!!

An enrollment specialist will assist to determine eligibility. Participation is voluntary.
How does Chronic Care Management work?
On a monthly basis, participants will receive at least 20 minutes of monthly activity including a phone call from a nationally licensed health care professional trained to discuss chronic conditions and treatment as received from the health care team.
Additional phone conversation topics include a review of treatment goals, medication management and refill needs, changes in status of chronic conditions and / or overall health status, health education, chronic disease education, referrals management, any health care or social barriers to care, and any concerns that need to be communicated to your clinician and health care team.
At the conclusion of the call, a summary of the conversation and any identified needs is sent to your clinician and health care team for review.
How much does Chronic Care Management cost?
There is no cost-sharing for participation in Cooperative Health’s Chronic Care Management Calls.
How do I enroll?
Interested Medicare or Medicare Advantage plan enrollees should call (803) 828-0465 to speak with an enrollment specialist. When placing the call, be prepared to identify your Cooperative Health office and the name of your clinician.
After consenting to enrollment, you will be assigned a nationally licensed Care Coordinator.
To ensure continuity of care, the same Care Coordinator participates in the monthly calls. This provides on-going consistency, the development of comfortability, trust, and a strong relationship.
