CodeMap® 12/11/2020: Clarification of Code U0005

CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: December 11, 2020

Editor's Welcome: Earlier this week, we presented our annual Medicare Reimbursement Update Webinar. Both in the Q&A following the webinar and subsequent emails, subscribers asked many questions concerning new HCPCS code U0005. There appears to be some confusion about the proper use of this code concerning high throughput COVID-19 tests. In response, we want to clarify and stress an important point:

HCPCS code U0005 is an add-on code to HCPCS codes U0003 and U0004. HCPCS code U0005 should only be reported with either HCPCS code U0003 or U0004.
