A Walkthrough of Recent COVID-19 Coding & Billing Updates
Join us as we cover recent updates since our last COVID-19 webinar on October 6, 2020. This webinar will focus on the new ICD-10-CM/PCS codes released effective January 1, 2021. We will review pertinent guidelines regarding coding for screening versus exposure during the pandemic. We will review the COVID-19 medication treatments that have been given Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and cover the coding and reimbursement aspects for these treatments. We will review current vaccines that have received EUA, and published reimbursement information. And for some good news, the Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) changes made some flexibilities allowed during the Public Health Emergency (PHE) to become permanent.
