What is Remote Patient Monitoring?

Medicare recently introduced 4 new CPT codes in 2019-2020 providing reimbursements for remotely monitoring patients health. Patients take daily readings using a variety of cellular devices that record health data for review by a provider.

We support 3 device types:

  • • Blood pressure monitors
  • • Glucose monitors
  • • Weight scales

  • • CPT 99453
  • $21 Setup & patient education on use of devices – can be billed one time

  • • CPT 99454

  • • CPT 99458
