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.
- Discuss the new ICD 10 codes effective Jan 1, 2021
- Explain the clinical group and comorbidity assignment for the new codes
