Bronwyn Spira of Force Therapeutics talked to Managed Healthcare Executive about CMS' new CPT codes that were introduced in 2022. These codes help more patients in underserved populations receive better access to care as barriers like cost and transportation are removed through remote care.

"In releasing these codes, CMS was very thoughtful about creating boundaries or minimal requirements," Spira said. "Because we want to make sure that these patients are receiving care that has parity to in-person care."

She added that it's crucial the outcome of care is delivered as expected by the patient when it comes to reimbursed care.

"It's really important, as we think about virtual care being reimbursed, that the care delivers the outcomes that patients expect and that those outcomes are being measured and delivered back to the care team," Spira said. "It really has to be a true ecosystem of care. All care should be predicated on delivering an outcome to the patients."
