This meeting will be held via webinar only.
On February 28, at 6:00 p.m. ET, MACs Novitas Solutions (Jurisdictions H and L) and First Coast Service Options (Jurisdiction N), along with Noridian Healthcare Solutions (Jurisdictions E and F), CGS Administrators (Jurisdiction 15), Palmetto GBA (Jurisdictions J and M), and WPS Government Health Administrators (Jurisdictions 5 and 8) will host a multi-jurisdictional Contractor Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting.
The purpose of the meeting is to obtain advice from CAC members and subject matter experts (SMEs) regarding the strength of published evidence on remote physiologic monitoring (RPM) and remote therapeutic monitoring (RTM) for non-implantable devices and any compelling clinical data to assist in defining meaningful and measurable patient outcomes (e.g., decreases in emergency room visit and hospitalizations) for our Medicare beneficiaries to assist in the determination of whether an LCD should be developed. In addition to discussion, CAC members and SMEs will opine on pre-distributed questions during the meeting. CAC panels do not make coverage determinations, but MACs benefit from their advice.
This meeting will be held via webinar only and will be open to the public; however, only CAC members, SMEs, and our RPM/RTM national work group CMDs will participate in the meeting discussion; all other attendees will be non-speaking observers. The meeting will be recorded and both the audio and written transcript will be made public.
Complete meeting details including meeting agenda, bibliography, discussion questions, and non-speaking observer registration is now available on our multi-jurisdictional CAC website.
