If you're an MD, PA, NP or other practitioner who performs primary care, you're aware that many patients continue to avoid medical care – even needed exams – due to concerns over COVID-19.
To help re-engage patients, iCare is offering a program to reimburse providers up to $100 in add-on payments for each iCare Medicare Plan (HMO D-SNP) member.
Earning Add-On Payments is Easy
Earn a $50 add-on payment in addition to the Medicare fee-for-service rates for for each qualifying Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) or Welcome to Medicare preventive visit billed under codes 99396, G0402, G0438 or G0439 completed between January 1, 2021 through the end of the federal public health emergency.
Earn an additional $50 for submitting medical records directly to iCare within 30 days of the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit, documenting the following components:
Documentation must be sent via fax or e-mail to iCare as follows within thirty (30) days of the date of the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit to:
Independent Care Health Plan
Attn: Quality Improvement Department
Annual Wellness Visit Documentation
Payments of the additional $50 related to medical records will be issued quarterly.
Each iCare Medicare Plan enrollee is eligible for one Medicare Annual Wellness Visit per calendar year. More information about the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit can be found here.
