Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services: Payment Available for Counseling Regarding Patient Self-Isolation

Oncology Practice Insider

On July 30, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced payment is available to physicians and health care providers to counsel patients at the time of COVID testing about the importance of self-isolation after they are tested and prior to the onset of symptoms. CMS will use existing evaluation and management (E/M) payment codes to reimburse providers who are eligible to bill CMS for counseling services no matter where a test is administered, including doctor’s offices, urgent care clinics, hospitals and community drive-thru or pharmacy testing sites.

A counseling check list has been created by CMS to aid in the discussion with the patient.
