In terms of remote patient monitoring, CMS has un-bundled CPT code 99091 for 2018, meaning that 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. CMS stated that this is a first step toward recognizing remote patient monitoring services for separate payment, and it will continue to closely track the AMA’s CPT Editorial Panel activities as they further refine and value the code sets for remote monitoring.
