Which Dx should I use for treating COVID-19 Patients
Question: What diagnostic code should I use for treating COVID-19 patients?
Answer: Effective March 14, 2020, a new diagnostic code has been created for the COVID-19 outbreak.
Diagnostic code: 080
This diagnostic code should be used when the primary purpose of rendering the service for which the claim is being submitted is because the patient is suspected to have or has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
