Diagnostic Tests

Medicare Part B, which includes a variety of outpatient services, covers medically necessary clinical diagnostic laboratory tests when a doctor or other practitioner orders them. Medically necessary clinical diagnostic laboratory tests are generally not subject to coinsurance or deductible. Medicare Part B also covers medically necessary imaging tests, such as computed tomography (CT) scans, as needed for treatment purposes for lung infections (not for screening asymptomatic patients). For those imaging tests paid by Part B, beneficiary coinsurance and deductible would apply. If the Part B deductible ($198 in 2020) applies to the Part B services, beneficiaries must pay all costs (up to the Medicare-approved amount) until the beneficiary meets the yearly Part B deductible. After the beneficiary’s deductible is met, Medicare coverage pays its share and beneficiaries typically pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount of the service (except laboratory tests), if the doctor or other health care provider accepts the assignment. There’s no yearly limit for what a beneficiary pays out-of-pocket.

CMS issued a public health news alert on February 13, 2020, which has additional information about the new Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code (U0001) for health care providers and laboratories to bill for laboratory testing patients for SARS-CoV-2. HCPCS is a standardized coding system that Medicare and other health insurers use to submit claims for services provided to patients. This code will allow those laboratories conducting the tests to bill for the specific test instead of using an unspecified code, which means better tracking of the public health response for this particular strain of the coronavirus to help protect people from the spread of this infectious disease.
