If a patient has been receiving CCM services under one PCP and that PCP leaves the practice, does the patient need to see their new PCP to continue CCM services? The new PCP is in the same clinic but has not seen the patient yet. Thanks!
If the new PCP is in the same practice, there should be no need for a separate visit solely for the purpose of transferring care between the providers. CMS has always taken that position that all providers of the same specialty within the same group practice are treated as the same provider for all practical purposes.
