Chronic Care Management

If you have chronic health care problems, there is a new “Coach” in town who may be able to help you improve your quality of life.  Michelle Burdick, RN, is a certified Clinical Health Coach and helps Medicare patients enrolled in the Chronic Care Management program at Coleman Medical Associates to play a more active and effective role in the management of their health.  The Chronic Care Management program was established to help Medicare patients with two more chronic conditions – such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease or stroke – play a more active and effective role in the management of their health. 

As a Health Care Coach, Burdick meets with each patient enrolled in the program to talk about their health care needs, concerns and goals.  Together, Burdick, the patient and their physician develop an individualized plan to accomplish these goals, and monitor progress over time, making adjustments to the plan as needed.  It is her job to work with patients to give them the tools they need to succeed.

A registered nurse, Burdick received her Clinical Health Coach training and certification from the Iowa Chronic Care Consortium, a voluntary group of public and private organizations established to help patients more effectively manage the most common chronic diseases.

Medicare patients with  chronic healthcare conditions may join the program by calling Michelle at 325/625-3533 to schedule an Annual Wellness Visit with their physician and discuss enrollment.  Michelle is available to answer
any questions patients may have about the program, including whether or not an individual qualifies for participation.  Coaching services provided by Michelle are free-of-charge to eligible Medicare patients. 

Medicare Wellness Visits

If you are covered by Medicare, you are eligible for a free Annual Medicare Wellness Visit to talk with your provider about ways to improve your health and prevent disease.  The Annual Wellness Visit is not the same as an annual physical exam, but it does provide patients with the same opportunity to talk with their provider about health concerns and to develop a plan in partnership with those providers to focus on health, rather than illness. 

Some of the services covered during an Annual Wellness Visit include:  routine measurements such as weight, height and blood pressure; review of your individual and family medical history, review of your current medications, discussion of the care you receive from other providers, and review of your functional ability and level of safety.  Based on this review, you and your provider will develop a health promotion and disease prevention plan based on your specific needs.

After your initial wellness visit, you are eligible for a follow-up or subsequent wellness visit every 12 months.  These visits are not subject to copayments to deductibles, so there is no cost to the individual.  Call Coleman Medical Associates at 325/625-3533 to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit.
