- Two new CPT® codes in 2020. The first is for patient education and calibration of a home blood pressure device
- The second is for reviewing data collected by the patient at home, with a report and communication back to the patient
- These join existing CPT® codes for remote monitoring, but these are based on the patient’s self-measurement and reporting
# 99473 Self-measured blood pressure using a device validated for clinical accuracy; patient education/training and device calibration
# 99474 separate self-measurements of two readings one minute apart, twice daily over a 30-day period (minimum of 12 readings), collection of data reported by the patient and/or caregiver to the physician or other qualified health care professional, with report of average systolic and diastolic pressures and subsequent communication of a treatment plan to the patient
