Principal Care Management (PCM)

Principal Care Management is also known as PCM and it is very similar to Medicare’s Chronic Care Management (CCM) with a few key differences. Under the new PCM codes, specialists may now be reimbursed for providing their patients with care management services that are more targeted within their own particular area of specialty. This program addresses the need for classification of treatment for patients with one chronic condition.
