It’s been almost a year now since we began coding COVID-19 and its related conditions. As the virus has evolved, we have seen changes and additions to the ICD-10-CM Classification related to COVID-19, the most recent of which became effective January 1, 2021. Join us as we explain the new codes for conditions resulting from COVID-19, discuss clinical group and comorbidity group assignment for these codes, and review the updated coding guidelines.


  1. Discuss the new ICD 10 codes effective Jan 1, 2021
  2. Explain the clinical group and comorbidity assignment for the new codes
  3. Understand updated guidelines related to COVID-19 coding
