CDC has issued new documents on ICD10 coding for the current “COVID-19” (nee “2019-nCoV”) coronavirus that first warranted attention in December 2019 in Wuhan, China:

These documents are put into context on CDC’s ICD10-CM page at https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/icd/icd10cm.htm.

CMS has also created a new billing code specific to testing for the COVID-19 virus.  For details see https://www.cms.gov/outreach-and-educationoutreachffsprovpartprogprovider-partnership-email-archive/2020-02-20#_Toc32923423.
