“The Arch”

 

I had the opportunity to vacation in Glacier National Park, Montana with my son Owen.  It was an amazing trip and we were blessed with the chance to see several moose, a black bear, a grey wolf, and plenty of deer and other wildlife.  We biked the legendary Going-to-the-Sun road (I recommend this for everyone!) and spent a week surrounded by some of the most amazing natural beauty I have seen.  It was a great chance to recharge and reflect on many things without the hustle and bustle of the office.

Thank You to All the Caregivers

An interesting thing happened last week.  I had the opportunity to go onsite to a key partner, in conjunction with a new program launch.  The site was in Western North Carolina and I had chosen to drive versus fly – possibly one of the best travel decisions I have made.  This meant that I had a six hour drive home afterward – through beautiful Western North Carolina and Tennessee.  I drove the Blue Ridge Parkway west across the Eastern Continental Divide, stopping liberally to take pictures (like this one accompanying this blog). I have no doubt in my mind that in a week or two, the scenery would turn to a lush green, but would still be as spectacular as it had been when I visited last week.

I found my drive was an opportunity to spend some time reflecting introspectively.

Remote Patient Monitoring CPT 99454 / CPT 99457 – An Update

It has been three months since the CMS CY 2019 reimbursement codes for remote patient monitoring (RPM) became effective – outlined in the 2019 Physician Fee Schedule.  At MobileHelp, we have been asked numerous questions and I thought it might be helpful to consolidate some of the questions and answers, by way of this post.

But first, can you explain the codes?

There are three non-face-to-face codes approved for remote patient monitoring (RPM), effective January 1, 2019.  Those codes are listed in the table below.
