Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield now covers MCT reimbursement

Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield recently announced to reveal their coverage determination for mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) monitoring. This is a big step in advancing MCT monitoring to another estimated 50 million patients.

Mobile Cardiac Telemetry monitoring is the most advanced form of ambulatory cardiac monitoring. It automatically detects & transmits patient’s ECG rhythms to an outpatient laboratory in (virtually) real time. This advanced form of outpatient cardiac monitoring represents an opportunity to immediately gather and review ECG and cardiac data. Mobile Cardiac Telemetry Monitoring eliminates the need to order a range of additional forms of cardiac monitoring tests. In example, the tests are 24 hour Holter monitoring, extended long term continuous ECG monitoring or traditional cardiac event monitoring. Mobile cardiac telemetry is exciting for the industry. It represents a legitimate opportunity to control & lower healthcare costs associated with redundant outpatient testing.
