On November 2, 2023, CMS released its 2024 Final Physician Fee Schedule on policies related to remote care management. At the time of the release, Medsien provided a full summary of 2024 updates and changes that would impact Medsien clients and programs related to remote care management. Here we offer a bit more information to highlight specific, important changes for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs).
CMS continues to advance the ability of RPM and RTM services to drive revenue and improve the patient care experience. The 2024 Final Rule addresses billing scenarios and requests for clarifications on the appropriate use of these remote monitoring codes, and clarifies CMS’ position on how it interprets certain requirements for these services.
Remote care management programs use technology to facilitate clinically driven, remote monitoring, care and education of patients and are essential to effective health management - in particular for managing patients with chronic disease.
The 2023 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) final rules were just released, and the biggest takeaway is the continued growth of Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) with the expansion of billing to include/allow for general supervision billing.
