Chronic Care Management Q & A

What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management includes health services for people with chronic health conditions — health issues that last a year or more and affect their daily routine. 

Chronic diseases are complex and may cause other health problems when left untreated. They may also cause symptoms or require treatments that affect how you live your life. With the right tools and support, you can gain control over your health to limit the effects your illness has on your life.

Chronic care management at Touro University Medical Group provides the education, monitoring, and help necessary to manage your long-term health condition. 

Chronic care management is also a covered benefit for people with Medicare Part B, which is the federal medical insurance plan for adults 65 and older and adults younger than 65 with a disability.

Our team includes experts in internal medicine, urology, rheumatology, and psychiatry. We take an evidence-based, patient-centered approach, listening intently to you and your concerns, explaining your condition and treatments, and working together to develop a treatment plan.
