COVID-19 updates: Add CR modifier to COVID-19 diagnosis claims

To ensure your patients have a $0 cost share for visits related to the diagnosis of COVID-19, provider offices, urgent cares and emergency rooms must use modifier CR anytime the visit results in a COVID-19 test being ordered. You should rebill claims back to February 4, 2020 for these visits.
