CMS introduces CPT Codes 99453, 99454, and 99457 to reimburse for Chronic Care Remote Patient Monitoring
The 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule demonstrates that CMS is listening to feedback from stakeholders. Restricting monitoring and analysis of patient data to physicians and QHCPs was impractical, so practitioners pushed to allow clinical staff to do a preliminary review of data and escalate problems to physicians for evaluation. The newly released CPT Codes 99453, 99454, and 99457 reflect this push.
