Is remote patient monitoring covered by commercial insurance?

Many commercial payers are following Medicare’s lead and covering remote patient monitoring, but coverage can be inconsistent.

Yes, but coverage can be inconsistent.   Overall, more and more commercial payors are following Medicare’s lead and covering RPM as the research demonstrates clear benefits both to clinical outcomes and cost-savings.   However, coverage can vary from plan to plan and can be difficult to determine without the time-consuming pre-authorization process.  

Optimize Health’s RPM Eligibility Verification service can help you easily determine exactly which of your patients have RPM coverage.  This can help you prioritize who to onboard into your RPM program without any surprise denials.
