Top 10 Tuesday Q&A – Urgent COVID-19 ICD-10CM Coding Update

This week, Terry closes out April with a Top 10 Q&A for COVID-19 ICD10-CM: hopefully, her last COVID-related podcast for awhile!

In an unprecedented move, the CDC added new directions on how to report COVID-19 and suspected COVID-19 patients in ICD-10-CM diagnosing.

Since those changes became effective 4/1/2020, there are specific directions on how to code for the coronavirus. For example, even if the test result is unconfirmed, you’ll need to know how to report these patient encounters.

It is more important than ever to be accurate: your reimbursement and potential government funding could depend on it.
