FAQ

The most common RPM devices are blood pressure monitor, weight scale, glucometer and Pulse oximeter.

Physicians and other qualified healthcare professionals (QHCPs) can provide and bill for RPM. Clinical staff can furnish and manage RPM under the general supervision of the billing practitioner.

Any Patient. With that said, a provider should only order/prescribe RPM if captured data is directly relevant to managing a patient’s condition(s) (i.e., medical necessity), with such justification documented in the medical record.

Yes. The Physicians must obtain written consent from patients and document in patient’s medical records.

RPM provides a wide range of benefits, including the following:
  • Keeping people healthy
  • Reducing the number of hospitalizations
  • Reducing readmissions
  • Reducing hospital length of stay
  • Reducing patient, provider, and overall healthcare costs
  • Permitting older and disabled individuals to remain at home longer and delay or avoid moving into skilled nursing facilities

  • RPM is considered a specific subset of telehealth. One can use the phrase ‘telehealth’ to refer to RPM, but telehealth can also refer to many other types of remote healthcare services.
  • RPM is the use of a device for interaction between providers and patients outside of the provider’s organization. Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical care, patient and professional health-related education, public health, and health administration.

Yes, as a Medicare Part B service, the patient is responsible for a 20% copayment for RPM services.

Yes, a provider can bill both the RPM and CCM CPT Code 99490. CMS recognizes the analysis involved in furnishing RPM services is complementary to CCM and other care management services. With that said, the time spent by providers in furnishing these services cannot be counted towards the required time for RPM and CCM codes for a single month. In other words, no “double counting.” Billing 99457 and 99490 together requires a provider to deliver at least 40 minutes of services: 20 minutes of RPM, 20 minutes of CCM.
