APMA Coordinates CAC Efforts on RPM Multi-Jurisdictional CAC Meeting

October 24, 2022

Advocacy written on compass

In September, APMA became aware of a multi-jurisdictional CAC meeting scheduled for February 28, 2023, including Novitas Solutions, First Coast Service Options, Noridian Healthcare Solutions, CGS Administrators, Palmetto GBA, and WPS Government Health Administrators.

A panel is being formed to examine coverage for Remote Physiologic Monitoring (RPM) and, tentatively, Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM). RPM allows a practice to monitor certain patient physiologic parameters remotely and respond to the information received.

APMA’s Health Policy and Practice Committee (HPPC) has established a workgroup to help steer APMA’s  activities in coordination with APMA’s Coding and Clinical Practice Advisory Committees. In furtherance of these efforts, APMA has nominated several participants to the multijurisdictional panel and encouraged other APMA Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC) representatives to submit their names for inclusion. The multijurisdictional workgroup has not yet named its participants, but APMA will remain involved in the process and will submit supportive literature and comments when applicable.
