Manatt Health Managing Director Jared Augenstein and Senior Manager Nathan Pauly wrote a Health Affairs article discussing the increase in remote physiologic monitoring use among Medicaid beneficiaries, which is reflected in an analysis of health care claims during recent years.

According to the article, from 2019-2021, the use of these remote services increased by more than 1,300% among Medicaid beneficiaries. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and many other payers expanded coverage and reimbursement for remote physiologic monitoring services during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, but are now reconsidering how or whether to continue covering these services moving forward. “Assessing trends in Medicaid remote physiologic monitoring use, variability in uptake by state, and characteristics of providers and recipients will help policy makers as they determine how to pay for these services,” the authors wrote.
