Monoclonal Antibody Treatments Provided in Nursing Homes

CMS has released a new document on monoclonal antibody treatments, mainly addressing billing and coverage questions. These treatments can be provided in the nursing home and by home health agencies, provided they are equipped to treat severe infusion reaction (such as anaphylaxis) and can activate EMS as needed. The treatments will be covered by Medicare similar to how vaccines are covered. More information is available here
