CMS Solicits Input On Coverage Of Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

Executive Summary

The agency is reopening the coverage policy on ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, non-invasive blood pressure measurement over 24-hour cycles, in response to a request from medical professional societies. Currently, Medicare only covers ABPM in limited circumstances where there is reason to believe a patient's in-office blood-pressure is not an accurate representation of their normal blood pressure.
