A new waiver was issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for ground ambulance services providing treatment in place as part of a COVID-19 protocol.

Instead, Medicare payment will be made for ground ambulance services during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. Join us as we figure out what this is and just as important, what this is NOT.
