The National Uniform Billing Committee has issued guidance to help health care providers flag claims for COVID-19-related services. Specifically, NUBC recommends that institutional claims for COVID-19-related services include the “DR” condition code for a national or regional disaster/emergency and use one of four applicable diagnosis codes. In addition, hospitals and health systems that have moved COVID-19 testing to off-campus facilities should use the hospital outpatient type of bill (013x), main hospital address and National Provider Identifier for these claims, the guidance states.
