    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the addition to the ICD-10-PCS code set 12 new codes that will help identify treatments for COVID-19 effective August 1, 2020.  Among the new codes are Section X New Technology codes for the introduction or infusion of therapeutics including Remdesivir and convalescent plasma, as well as any future new therapeutic substance for the treatment of COVID-19 that does not have a unique name. Concurrently, CMS also released the new ICD-10 MS-DRGs Grouper software package to accommodate these new codes, Version 37.2 effective August 1, 2020.  The new codes will not affect the MS-DRG assignment. Detailed information is found here.
