SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iRhythm Technologies, Inc.

Following the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Calendar Year 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) Final Rule published on December 1, 2020, iRhythm has been coordinating with other industry participants to seek appropriate carrier pricing for CPT codes 93241, 93243, 93245 and 93247. iRhythm submitted a meeting request with Novitas on January 3, 2021. iRhythm anticipates meeting with Novitas but the meeting has not yet been scheduled.
