Medicare Coverage of Care Planning Toolkit for Providers

In 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) began paying healthcare providers for care planning services for individuals with cognitive impairments.

The Alzheimer’s Association, with the help of an expert task force, created a toolkit to help providers understand how to conduct a care planning visit under the new CMS code.

The toolkit includes easy access to validated measures — such as the Mini-Cog™ and Dementia Severity Rating Scale, newly designed assessment tools, and links to helpful resources, including caregivers.
