The CMS has identified Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) as a crucial component of primary care for patients. This page provides CPT codes and descriptions for billing remote patient monitoring (RPM) under CPT codes 99453, 99454, 99457 and 99458. Medicare and many private payer reimbursement rules compensate medical providers for prescribing and reviewing data that is produced by monitoring devices that capture/store/transmit patients’ physiological data and subsidize the device/service costs.
Every month, you receive a reimbursement of, on average, $125 per patient per month. In addition, you receive a one-time reimbursement for setup and patient education for each patient: approximately $20 per patient. These amounts will vary by location. DocuVitals provides complete, all-inclusive Platinum service that includes the vital sign device at no charge to the patient*, delivering and setting up the vital sign device with the patient, monitoring the daily vital signs of the patients, and alerting the practice whenever a patient exceeds the desired target range. You do the monthly billing to Medicare and other private payors and pay DocuVitals a low monthly fee for providing the complete service. The rest is your profit.
