Lacktman Comments on Proposed 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program

20 July 2018 mHealthIntelligence News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in an mHealthIntelligence article, “CMS Makes a ‘Landmark Change’ in RPM, Telehealth Reimbursement,” about proposed changes in the 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program that are designed to boost remote patient monitoring and telehealth programs.

Lacktman said the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has introduced three proposed new remote patient monitoring codes (RPM) that are intended to better reflect how RPM services can be delivered to patients. Under the new codes, he said, less treatment time would be required to qualify for reimbursement, separate reimbursement would be offered for the time spent setting up the RPM equipment and for educating the patient on its use, and clinical staff would be allowed to perform RPM services.
