What is RTM?
Patients on injectable medications in the home setting, are particularly vulnerable to medication non-adherence.
In January 2022, CMS introduced a new set of CPT reimbursement codes to cover Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) of patients outside of clinical settings. These codes can be adopted to help provide dedicated technology, monitoring and support that assists in home therapeutic monitoring (medication adherence) of patients taking injectable medication. The codes are broken down as follows:
Per National Average
CPT Code 98975
Initial Set Up and Patient Education
CPT Code 98976/98977
Supply of Device – Monthly
CPT Code 98980
Monitoring Treatment/ Management First
20 minutes in one calendar month
CPT Code 98981
Monitoring Treatment/ Management –
Each Additional 20 minutes in one calendar month
With the introduction of RTM, there is finally a pathway for reimbursement for clinicians that play a key role in training, supporting and monitoring this cohort of patients throughout their treatment.
