New CMS Guidelines

As of January 1, 2019 the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) made remote care a separate billable service with three new codes for Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM); the guidelines allow providers to track and monitor patient-focused care for both reporting and outcomes to qualify for new regulated reimbursement models.

The new CMS RPM guidelines, part of the Chronic Care Act of 2018, allow reimbursement for technology-enabled services and virtual care. The terminology is important since the term “telehealth” has very specific statutory regulations – and while the definition and usage of telehealth may be expanded by congress in the future, the game-changing and much-needed Remote Patient Monitoring reimbursement from CMS is a welcomed step in the right direction.

Now, getting down to business: even when changes in technology and reimbursement are positive, it can be a challenge to integrate the updates.
