Transforming Digital Health: How Providers and DTx Companies Can Utilize RPM and RTM Codes to Improve Care
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued its annual Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule for 2022, which expands upon the agency’s growing interest in remote monitoring by adding Medicare coverage for five new Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) codes. This decision follows close on the heels of CMS’ decision to offer Medicare coverage for Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) codes in the last several years.
The expansion of Medicare coverage for remote monitoring is an exciting development that promises to transform the digital healthcare landscape. Join Foley Hoag for a webinar examining the parameters of these reimbursement codes, including Medicare’s criteria for reimbursement and how RPM and RTM codes differ. Interested providers and digital therapeutics (DTx) companies will walk away with an understanding of this emerging field, including whether certain software systems meet the definition of “device” under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), a key factor for purposes of qualifying for reimbursement under these codes.
