Governor Inslee signs SB5169 allows provider reimbursement

Use CPT code 99072 broadly* as appropriate 

Effective immediately, any provider treating patients with state regulated commercial health plans and who has incurred costs for PPE will be able to bill the newly created CPT code 99072 and be reimbursed $6.57 per patient encounter (as recommended by the AMA's RUC Committee). 

*Limitations may include self-insursed plans and determining which health plans are subject to state regulation. This is for the duration of the federal public health emergency.
