NAACOS is working with both Congress and CMS to support ACOs’ important work during the COVID-19 pandemic. NAACOS and nine other leading provider organizations asked Congress and the Trump administration to act quickly to ensure clinicians focused on value-based care are not inappropriately penalized for the extreme costs of handling the COVID-19 pandemic and can continue to focus their energy on patient care. Click on the graphic to the right for more information on how ACOs are leveraging high tech, high-touch population health tools to support patients at high risk for COVID-19.

Providers Who Bill for Laboratory Tests: New HCPCS codes U0001 and U0002 have been released for dates of service on or after February 4, 2020. Providers who test members for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2019 Novel Coronavirus Real Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Test Panel may bill using code U0001. Providers may use code U0002 to bill for non-CDC laboratory tests for COVID-19. Billing with these specific codes will allow for better tracking of the public health response for COVID-19. Claims for U0001 and U0002 will initially suspend for EOB 0000 – “This claim/service is pending for program review.” Suspended claims will be released when the Colorado interChange is updated.
