As health professionals and auditors, we’re all very much involved in recording data for the testing and treatment of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As of this week the AMA has announced the addition of a new CPT code to help record and track patients who are impacted by the virus.
The new Catergory I CPT code and descriptor are:
Infectious agent detection by nucleic acid (DNA or RNA); severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (Coronavirus disease [COVID-19]), amplified probe technique
This new code is effective immediately for use as the industry standard for the reporting of tests for the novel coronavirus across the nation’s health care system and has been fully integrated into our Swiftaudit software.
