Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, On the Job, Scope of Practice

Medical Assistants’ Role in RPM Services

Medical assistants meet the criteria for clinical staff for several well-known programs (the Medicare Chronic Care Management (CCM) and Transitional Care Management (TCM) programs and the Medicare appropriate use criteria program for advanced diagnostic imaging services). But what is medical assistants’ scope of practice for other services, such as remote physiologic monitoring (RPM) services?

To answer this question, review relevant information from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code structure and several general legal principles presented in the March/April 2020 Public Affairs article, “Medical Assistants’ Role in Remote Physiologic Monitoring Services,” on the AAMA website.
