Effective January 1, 2018, the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) will reimburse for remote patient monitoring (RPM) services for certain chronic conditions.
RPM is a service which uses digital technologies to collect medical and other forms of health data from individuals and electronically transmits that information securely to health care providers for assessment, recommendations, and interventions. Providers should order RPM when it is medically necessary to improve chronic disease control and it is expected to reduce potentially preventable hospital utilization.
Providers eligible to prescribe RPM include:
- Home Health Agencies
- Federally Qualified Health Centers
- Managed Care Organizations
- Health Professionals (Physicians, Nurses, and Physician Assistants)
