Remote Patient Monitoring
Generate recurring revenue while improving patient outcomes
Unbundling of the Medicare/Medicaid CPT code 99091 immediately increases the amount of billable Medicare hours available for doctors and clinicians who review patient-generated health data which is transmitted electronically to the physician.
Eligible practitioners can bill to receive separate reimbursement for time spent on collection and interpretation of health data, at a minimum of 30 minutes of time, once per month, that is generated by a patient remotely and digitally transmitted to the provider.
The provider’s billing time under CPT code 99091 should be considered as equivalent to the typical times for evaluation & management (E/M) office visits. There are “assumed times, established through physician survey by the American Medical Association … for how much time the billing practitioner spends each month, but are not exact times. The billing practitioner’s time could be spent in activities such a directing clinic staff; personally performing clinic staff activities; or in the case of complex CCM, performing moderate to high complexity medical decision making.
