    Under the temporary regulatory Waivers were granted under "CMS Hospital Without Walls", CMS expanded the list of destinations for ambulatory transports that include "the beneficiary's home". Does anyone know whether ambulance transportation of patients who test positive for COVID-19 prior to the patient being fully recovered can be billed to CMS Medicare as "medically necessary", under the temporary Waiver?
