Comments & Letters

The Alliance for Connected Care provided feedback to HHS on proposed rules revising safe-harbors under the Anti-Kickback Statute and Civil Monetary Penalty rules on beneficiary inducements.   The Alliance focused its comments on four priority areas for telehealth and remote patient monitoring in the proposed rule:

  • Request for comment on the possible exclusion of health technology companies from value-based safe harbors
  • Implementation of the statutory exception for telehealth technologies for in-home dialysis as passed by Congress
  • New opportunity to protect arrangements involving telehealth and remote patient monitoring under the care coordination safe harbor
  • New safe harbor for patient engagement and support that could include telehealth and remote patient monitoring services
