Emergency Rule Expands AEM Coverage to Include Office Diagnosis and Treatment for COVID-19

March 25, 2020

Alien Emergency Medical (AEM) clients can access care within the provider’s office setting (outside of the emergency department, inpatient and other outpatient settings) to diagnose and treat COVID-19. This is an expansion of regular AEM coverage which is limited to emergency and hospital services. The emergency rule can be viewed here.

Read details regarding this and other COVID-19 related issues on the Health Care Authority’s (HCA) COVID-19 information page. HCA will update this page as necessary, so please bookmark it and check back regularly. (Andrew Busz, AndrewB@wsha.org)
