MGMA to payers: Reimburse additional COVID-19 related costs

11/19/2020 11:54 AM | Rebekah Francis (Administrator)

MGMA joined over 100 other organizations in urging the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and major commercial health plans to immediately implement and pay for CPT code 99072 with no patient cost-sharing during the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). The CPT Editorial Panel recently approved CPT code 99072 to cover additional supplies, materials, and clinical staff time above the typical practice expenses included in an office visit when performed during the COVID-19 PHE. Reimbursement for this code is intended to help compensate practices for these additional expenses and provide financial support so that practices can continue to focus on caring for their patients during the pandemic.
