COVID ICD10 codes

ICD-10 codes For starters, the World Health Organization (WHO) developed an International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) code for COVID-19: U07.1 COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) adopted the code in March when the US government declared the COVID-19 pandemic a national public health emergency. The code became effective on April 1, 2020. Since then, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has developed over 20 International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS) codes for documenting COVID-19 treatments and vaccines.

Six of the codes are for vaccine administration and they include:

• XW013S6: Introduction of COVID-19 vaccine dose 1 into subcutaneous tissue, percutaneous approach, new technology group 6

• XW013T6: Introduction of COVID-19 vaccine dose 2 into subcutaneous tissue, percutaneous approach, new technology group 6

• XW013U6: Introduction of COVID-19 vaccine into subcutaneous tissue, percutaneous approach, new technology group 6

• XW023S6: Introduction of COVID-19 vaccine dose 1 into muscle, percutaneous approach, new technology group 6

• XW023T6: Introduction of COVID-19 vaccine dose 2 into muscle, percutaneous approach, new technology group 6

• XW023U6: Introduction of COVID-19 vaccine into muscle, percutaneous approach, new technology group 6



CMS states that the new procedure codes will “describe the introduction or infusion of therapeutics, including monoclonal antibodies and vaccines for COVID-19 treatment,” including vaccines like the one from Pfizer and BioNTech that requires two doses.
