Now that coders have had some time to work through patient cases using the COVID-19 diagnosis codes, it’s time to do a quick review to ensure that they are using these new codes correctly to remain compliant and capture accurate payments.

This training is perfect for your coders, quality assurance staff, and clinicians. They’ll walk through scenarios involving the new COVID-19 codes and be able to avoid audit scrutiny and potential overpayments later.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Comply with rules on COVID-19 code use
  • Understand how COVID-19 codes can impact payments
  • Avoid auditor scrutiny related to COVID-19 codes
  • Deliver documentation to support the use of COVID-19 codes
  • Spot conditions resulting from COVID-19
  • Identify how to avoid common coding mistakes with COVID-19 codes


  • Explore COVID-19 code choices and understand why the new codes to identify conditions resulting from COVID-19 were necessary
  • Discuss the new respiratory code
  • Walk through the new musculoskeletal codes
  • Work through scenarios involving MIS coding and more
  • Walk through the new Z codes
  • Identify when new codes can be primary
