BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA - 11/29/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Beginning next year, CMS has unbundled CPT code 99091. It will pay physicians for 30 minutes of remote monitoring and reduce the overall healthcare costs while delivering proactive care to patients.
Sargas Pharmaceutical Adherence and Compliance (SPAC) International announces that the newest government legislation for Remote Patient Monitoring will be applied effective January 1, 2018. “Providers will soon be able to get reimbursed separately for time spent on collection and interpretation of health data that is generated by a patient remotely, digitally stored and transmitted to the provider, at a minimum of 30 minutes of time,” Jodi G Daniel and Maya Uppaluru attorneys for the law firm of Crowell and Moring, wrote in a Nov.3 blog (https://www.emhealthlaw.com/2017/11/newreimbursement-for-remote-patient-monitoring-and- telemedicine/).
“Remote patient monitoring (RPM) empowers the monitoring of patients outside of regular clinical settings (e.g. in the home), which will increase patient engagement and help decrease healthcare costs. It can be the best way of treating tumours and other serious health conditions in the long term,” said Git Patel CEO of SPAC International.
