If you're wondering what diagnosis code to report in support of preoperative Covid-19 screening tests, the FY 2024 ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting has the answer: Assign code Z11.52 (Encounter for screening for COVID-19), the newly updated guidelines instruct.
Prepare for several hundred new ICD-10-CM codes now finalized to take effect Oct. 1. On June 16, CMS announced the additions of 395 new diagnosis codes, 25 deletions to the ICD-10-CM code set and 13 revisions. In addition, there are hundreds of changes to tabular instructions added in the addenda for the FY 2024 code set.
The proposed ICD-10 code changes — released with the FY2024 Hospital Inpatient PPS (IPPS) proposed rule on April 10 — include new codes to enhance the tracking and progression of Parkinson’s disease, including codes for Parkinson’s disease with and without dyskinesia and Parkinsonism, unspecified.
You don’t have to implement new National Correct Coding Initiative edits this month. That means you have more time to focus on the ICD-10-CM update.
Come April 1, coders will have additional code options to further capture social determinants of health (SDOH) and abuse and neglect, as CDC released upcoming changes to both the code set and official guidelines on Jan. 9.
