Good news for remote monitoring reimbursement

July 5, 2018

CMS proposed a rule that would expand reimbursement for remote patient monitoring by home healt care providers by 2021, a move that could encourage patients to “share more live-time data” with providers, administrator Seema Verma said July 2.

The proposed rule would let home health agencies report remote patient monitoring to Medicare as an operating cost, factoring it into larger cost analyses and payment rates, Morning eHealth’s Arthur Allen reports. Remote monitoring might cover IT, medical devices and software, and labor, a CMS official told reporters July 2.

The proposed rule would also change payment units from 60 days to 30 days starting in January 2020.
