Learn how CPT codes 99457, 99458, and 99091 can help you achieve your goals in implementing a successful remote patient monitoring program.
A surge in interest in remote care programs has prompted the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to increase its support for RPM. CPT codes can help doctors’ offices earn from RPM programs while increasing overall patient care. These guidelines establish a financial framework for physicians to be compensated for their time and equipment.
CMS recently updated its guidelines on Medicare requirements for remote physiologic monitoring (RPM) services for the year 2021. The adjustment took effect on January 1, 2021, and the prelude statement in the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) Final Rule has been updated, which PFS was previously issued on December 1, 2020.
