Medicare Pharmacies and Other Suppliers May Temporarily Enroll as Independent Clinical Diagnostic Laboratories to Help Address COVID-19 Testing

Published 05/12/2020

Pharmacies and other suppliers currently enrolled in Medicare may also enroll temporarily as independent clinical diagnostic laboratories during the COVID-19 public health emergency via the provider enrollment hotline. This will provide additional laboratory resources to meet the urgent need to increase COVID-19 testing capability. Pharmacies and other suppliers who are not currently enrolled in Medicare and want to enroll as an Independent Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory, must submit a CMS-855B enrollment application to the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) serving your geographic area.
