CMS has developed Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes that can be used by laboratories to bill for certain COVID-19 diagnostic tests to help increase testing and track new cases.
  • U0001 - CDC 2019 Novel coronavirus (2019-NCOV) real-time RT-PCR diagnostic panel
  • U0002 - 2019-NCOV Coronavirus, SARS-COV-2/2019-NCOV (COVID-19), any technique, multiple types or subtypes (includes all targets), non-CDC
