  • This one-hour webcast addresses coding and payment for Insertable/Implantable Cardiac Monitors (ICMs). First, we provide an overview of ICM technology and the insertion process. Then we discuss 2021 coverage, coding and payment for ICMs. Finally, we review remote monitoring and how to appropriately report common patient scenarios to Medicare.

  • Remote monitoring is critical to ensure appropriate follow-up care for patients implanted with an Abbott cardiac device. This one-hour webcast provides an educational review of remote monitoring for patients with implanted pacemakers, cardiac resynchronization therapy devices, implantable cardioverter defibrillators and implantable cardiac monitors.
