Lacktman Comments on New CPT Code for Remote Patient Monitoring

04 April 2019 mHealth Intelligence News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in an mHealth Intelligence article, “CMS Tweaks CPT Code for Remote Monitoring, Giving mHealth a Boost,” about a new CPT code for remote patient monitoring that gives providers more leeway to use telehealth for chronic care management and coordination.

Lacktman said the new code amounts to a technical correction of the 2019 Physician Fee Schedule, which said that remote physiologic monitoring treatment management services could not be conducted by auxiliary personnel incident to a practitioner’s professional services. Now they can. “This is a welcome revision long-awaited by telehealth providers,” he said.
