Massachusetts Legislature Approves Reimbursement of Home Remote Patient Monitoring

Medicaid enrolled and certified home health agencies in Massachusetts are now eligible to reimburse for home remote patient monitoring.  Bi-partisan members of the state Senate and House over tuned the Governor’s veto to allow Medicaid reimbursement of home remote patient monitoring by home health agencies, (H.3538 Section 4000-0300) The members’ votes, which exceeded the two-thirds majority needed to overturn the veto, highlight their support for home remote monitoring, long-term health care cost savings, and enhanced patient care. 

Massachusetts is now the 12th state to allow reimbursement under their Medicaid plan for home patient remote monitoring. View more information on the ATA Policy Wiki here
