Arlington, VA– The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has submitted comments with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on its Advance Notice regarding changes to Medicare Advantage capitation rates, and Medicare Part C and D payment policies for calendar year 2015.
In its comments, TIA urges CMS to realize the potential of remote access technologies, including remote patient monitoring solutions, which have been shown to improve care, reduce hospitalizations, and decrease cost, among other benefits. Specifically, TIA supported the CMS proposal to allow Medicare Advantage Organizations to provide remote monitoring technologies as a mandatory supplemental benefit.
