Remote Patient Monitoring Billing Codes

The recognition of the substantial benefits of remote patient monitoring services has led to the introduction of specific Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes for RPM billing and insurance reimbursement. Misuse of these codes can lead to payment recoupments or denials. It’s crucial to understand that RPM services are reimbursable when provided by a physician, qualified healthcare professional, or clinical staff.
