A panel discussion on reimbursement, How has RPM Reimbursement Evolved and Where does it Need to Go? is scheduled for Thursday, September 23 from 10:30-11:30 AM Central Time.

Medicare’s 2021 final rule contained some significant changes to remote patient monitoring, most notably that pandemic-era coverage of telehealth and remote patient monitoring would continue to be covered. However, there are also certain limitations regarding the types of devices used to monitor patients remotely. Hear from experts about how public and private payers have changed their reimbursement policies and what more needs to be done.
