CDC and CMS Launch Patient Focused Initiative

The CDC and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services jointly launched a new initiative that encourages counseling patients being tested for COVID-19 about the importance of isolation, quarantine, and contact tracing to slow the spread of the virus. As part of this effort, Medicare and Medicaid will now reimburse providers for counseling patients on taking these key prevention strategies.
