It also requires CMS to work with stakeholders to develop a standard of care for using remote monitoring for those conditions. The bill also provides for a demonstration program to evaluate whether Medicare should cover remote monitoring services for diabetes, epilepsy, and sleep apnea. The bill, sponsored by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Charles Pickering (R-MI), John Tanner (D-TN), and Kenny Hulsof (R-MO), drew swift praise from AdvaMed. "What was once only science fiction is now patient care reality. With remote monitoring technologies, a physician can evaluate and manage complex chronic diseases from remote locations and provide real-time care for patients," said AdvaMed President Stephen J. Ubl. "Unfortunately, the adoption and widespread diffusion of such innovations have been stymied by antiquated reimbursement systems." Indeed they have. As patient care moves toward more home-based solutions, the law needs to adapt to reflect this reality.
