This article was originally published in the Summer 2020 Issue of Critical Connections.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a unique set of challenges. These challeng­es have been tempered to some extent by provisions made by the American Medical Association and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to assist with the billing and documentation burden. Their goals are to create temporary hospitals, facilitate out-of-state hiring of providers, increase access to telemedicine, increase availability of testing, and minimize pa­perwork. We discuss some of the key points about appropriateness of documentation and billing based on guidance provided by these organizations.
Critical Connections, the critical care industry's only newsmagazine, provides information on cutting-edge topics in critical care useful to the entire multiprofessional team.
