Identifying the most appropriate COVID-19 testing codes, testing sites and type of test to use can be confusing. The guidance below can make it easier for you to refer your patients to high-quality, lower-cost COVID-19 testing sites, find AMH Health, LLC-contracted laboratories and identify the proper CPT® codes to use. Contact your AMH Health representative for additional information or visit https://www.anthem.com/medicareprovider.

 

Refer patients to https://www.anthem.com/coronavirus to find convenient testing locations

If an AMH Health member requests a COVID-19 test, you may refer them to AMH Health to find a testing location near them. Our test-site finder gives members important information about each site, including days and hours of operation, and if they offer:

 

  • Appointment or walk-in
  • Drive thru service
  • Rapid test results
  • Antibody testing
  • Testing for children

 

Consider antigen testing as an option when rapid results are needed

Antigen tests can be a quicker way to detect COVID-19 than nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT), (for example, PCR). Antigen tests offer a reasonable and lower cost alternative when screening asymptomatic or low-risk patients and may be most useful for individuals within the first five to seven days of symptoms when virus replication is at its highest.

 

Send swab tests to AMH Health-contracted laboratories
