For Patients

Remote patient monitoring with Criterion Health Care may be a good choice for you if:

  • You are a resident of Texas
  • You are a Medicaid-qualified Medicare beneficiary
  • You have a condition requiring regular check-ups, such as diabetes or hypertension

Does it Require Pre-Authorization?

Telemonitoring services for diabetes and hypertension require you to meet certain qualifying criteria and may require an authorization form from your doctor. If you have either of these conditions and are interested in receiving telemonitoring services, you will need to discuss these qualifying criteria first. To learn more and find out whether you qualify, speak to your physician today.

What Does it Cost?

Telemedicine and telemonitoring services are covered by Medicare. This means that any care you receive and any monitoring equipment provided to you will be completely free of charge to you.

How Can I Enroll?

If you think you’re ready to try telemonitoring, the first step is talking to your current care provider about getting started. To provide covered telemonitoring services, your care provider must take certain steps to ensure that your care is paid for. Criterion Health Care can help with this.
