CPF Peer Questions
There were 3 Peer Questions submitted to CPF member practices this week:
  • Who in your office notifies employees about a potential exposure when a patient's COVID test comes back positive? Who investigates what PPE the staff wore and is this reflected via documentation in the EHR?
  • Are any practices using the Sofia machine for COVID testing? If so, are you billing Medicaid and getting reimbursed for the test?
  • How are you handling 'Exemption Letter' requests for families that wish to have permission to take advantage of distance-learning options?
