The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has created a “Current Emergencies” page on its website that compiles links to the agency’s recent press releases and guidance regarding coronavirus in one place. CMS has already issued more than 30 press releases and guidance documents in March alone and there are too many to summarize, but topics include billing and coding, coverage, and clinical and technical guidance for hospitals, laboratories and private providers during the current pandemic. More regulatory changes are expected, so all providers are advised to check the page periodically.
