CPT® Code 99091 reimburses physicians or QHCPs at a higher rate if they are conducting the remote monitoring.
CPT® Code 99091 is designed to reimburse physicians or QHCPs (that can bill E/M codes) at a higher rate than other clinical staff if they are conducting the actual monitoring and patient engagement.
Like 99457, it can be billed monthly and the same activities count towards care team member time. Unlike 99457, 99091 requires 30 minutes of time but does not require the live, 2-way interaction. 99091 can only be billed once per month.
