Which codes would we use for Remote Patient Monitoring if the Dietitian is reviewing electronic food logs that are updated daily by the patient (weekly/ monthly) for patients referred for a 3 month and 6 month supervised diet.

Thank you for your question nbsp As per the above documentation CPT code Collection and interpretation of physiologic data eg ECG blood pressure glucose monitoring digitally stored and or transmitted by the patient and or caregiver to the physician or other qualified health care professional qualified by education training licensure...

Since the provider is only reviewing data that the patient has sent in remotely AND not seeing the patient telephonically wouldn't it be appropriate to use the 99091 to bill? The provider is not seeing the patient so the 97803 would not apply, right since this code is for "face-to-face" encounters?

Thank you for your Question!
Yes, if the provider is only reviewing data remotely then the CPT code 99091 would be appropriate. CPT code 97803 was suggestive if provider has performed any telephonic service along with reviewing of data.
Hope this Helps!
