CMS Issues User-Friendly Booklet Summarizing Items and Services Not Covered by Medicare

Dan Ciolek

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued a user-friendly 18-page Medicare Learning Network Booklet summarizing items and services not covered by Medicare.  
This booklet provides information on the four categories of items and services Medicare does not cover and exceptions (items and services Medicare may cover). This material is not an all-inclusive list of all items and services Medicare may or may not cover, but includes links to more detailed policy information related to each subject.  This document would be a useful resource for SNF clinical staff and billers to review and refer to should questions arise regarding coverage for certain items and services.
