Oxygen Coverage Extended for COVID-19 Patients
CMS recently updated their COVID-19 FAQ noting that home oxygen use will be covered for patients that are diagnosed with COVID-19. CMS is currently reviewing the NCDs and LCDs to determine if there are other regulatory barriers that can be removed during this emergency and will provide an update soon.
You can find the updated COVID-19 FAQ here. Oxygen coverage update can be found on the last page (page 10).
