CPT 99489 – Complex Chronic Care Management

(Last Updated On: July 11, 2017)

Complex Chronic Care Management patients often require several hours of care coordination per month. Accordingly, as of 2017, Medicare is reimbursing for additional non-face-to-face time spent by clinical staff on care coordination via CPT 99489. CPT 99489 is an add-on code for CPT 99487 that reimburses for each additional 30 minutes of care coordination services per calendar month (CPT 99497 reimburses for the first 60 minutes).
