Medical Billing for COVID-19 and
Nothing in recent history has caused as much change and confusion in the medical billing services industry as 2019’s novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, and COVID-19, the disease it causes.

New tests had to be developed and those with symptoms had to be treated immediately—leaving hospitals and labs wondering how to get paid. New medical billing codes have been released and medical billing teams are struggling to keep up. With things changing so frequently, it is almost impossible for practitioners and labs to manage their own COVID-19 billing.
