COVID-19 test pricing announced by CMS

March 13, 2020

CMS released pricing for COVID-19 testing for each Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) earlier today. The full list may be downloaded here:

Starting in April, laboratories performing the test can bill Medicare and other health insurers for services that occurred after February 4, 2020, using the newly created HCPCS code (U0001). This code is only to be used for the tests developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Laboratories performing non-CDC laboratory tests for SARS-CoV-2/2019nCoV (COVID-19) can bill for them using a different HCPCS code (U0002).
