Health IT stakeholders urge CMS to adopt 3 new remote monitoring reimbursement codes
Nearly 50 health IT stakeholders are calling Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to expand reimbursement for remote monitoring services in its next physician payment rule.
In a letter (PDF) to CMS Administrator Seema Verma, several major healthcare associations, along with dozens of health IT and mHealth companies, pushed the agency to consider three Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) remote monitoring codes approved by the American Medical Association’s CPT Editorial Panel last year.
