You are required to provide TB surveillance for your ESRD patients, you do "bill" for it, as with all other areas around providing the treatment, it is not separately "reimbursable" but is part of the CMS bundle. You could receive payment for this from some commercial plans, that varies. Fortunately, unless your area health officer has deemed your community at high risk, you likely are only doing this at the time of admission, it is also a very inexpensive "test".
