ACDIS update: Regulatory Committee releases new insight on COVID-19 treatments add-on payments
Amid the many recent COVID-19 coding updates, it may have been easy to overlook Medicare’s new COVID-19 treatments add-on payment (NCTAP). The NCTAP is applied in addition to the MS-DRG payment for inpatient cases.
The ACDIS Regulatory Committee has released insight for the NCTAP for use by CDI professionals. The Regulatory Committee insight can be found here. The ACDIS Regulatory Committee is responsible for reviewing regulatory policy and coding and clinical updates, commenting to agencies on behalf of ACDIS, and providing summary, interpretation, and analysis to the ACDIS membership.

- The ACDIS Advisory Board: Provides leadership, expertise, and an industry voice for the ACDIS membership. Note that board members are ultimately elected by a popular vote of ACDIS members.

- Chapter Advisory Board: Serves as liaisons between local chapter leaders and ACDIS national administration by participating on chapter leadership conference calls, promoting best practice, and providing guidance to leaders across the country.
