New CMS codes for 2019 allow for reimbursement to clinicians for the time they invest with patients between clinical visits as well as for initial equipment set-up and patient education.* Additionally, changes in Medicare Advantage plans could provide other reimbursement opportunities in 2020, allowing for the expansion of remote patient monitoring services for members.

Now is a good time to consider adding a remote patient monitoring (RPM) program to your practice.

Three codes are available for RPM reimbursement
