COVID-19: Using the CR Modifier and DR Condition Code
CMS (June 5, 2020) – This week, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services provided clarification on the use of modifier CR (catastrophe/disaster related) and/or condition code DR (disaster related) when submitting claims to Medicare. The update includes a chart of blanket waivers and flexibilities that require the modifier or condition code. The modifiers are in response to the declared Public Health Emergency. The revised document is available here. Please visit the CMS website for additional information.
