A New Diag. Code
You may need to edit your claims to include 080 as the diagnostic code. Effective March 14, 2020, 080 has been created for the COVID-19 outbreak. The new diagnostic code should be used when treating patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 and/or when treating a patient by telephone/video for suspected or confirmed COVID-19. Use the appropriate diagnostic code when treating a patient for unrelated diagnoses by telephone/video due to COVID-19 related concerns.
