The National Law Review, August 2, 2018
Earlier this year, in a first-of-its-kind move, CMS made remote patient monitoring (RPM) a separately-reimbursable service under Medicare. Now, CMS has proposed three new codes for RPM services, retitled “Chronic Care Remote Physiologic Monitoring,” which do a far better job reflecting how providers can more effectively and efficiently use RPM technology to monitor and manage patient care needs, including chronic care management. If finalized, these three codes would go live January 1, 2019. Until then, CMS is accepting comments on the proposed codes through September 10, 2018.
