    Travel Testing for COVID-19

    Hi all, I tried searching for this but unable to find a clear answer. How is everyone coding (ICD-10) their patients receiving COVID-19 tests for travel? I have seen payer guidance that testing for this reason is not covered but I don't see they are advising how to code it.

    Wiki Rapid COVID Nasal Swab

    Hello All, I wanted to confirm there wasn't a new code to be used for the RAPID COVID-19 test. All I've seen this far was CPT 87635 for the actual COVID test. The other CPT that were added were for the Antibodies test from what I am reading. This will be coding for an Urgent care as well as a PCP.

    We are aware of the guidance from Medicare to bill CPT 99211. However, I posed the question to my supervisor about commercial payers. She does not like billing the CPT 99211 for the swab at all because the documentation does not support an e/m service. She states, "If you do not take vitals, you...
