If a facility is submitting hourly charges for nitric oxide ventilation, should the claim submitted to Medicare include the ICD-10 procedure code 3E0F7SD?


ICD-10-PCS code 3E0F7SD appears to be appropriate for use when nitric oxide is administered via ventilation. It would be an applicable PCS code for the inpatient claim since it is specific to the form of therapy during the inpatient hospitalization. While this PCS code is recognized for inhaled nitric oxide (INO) therapy, the hospital coding staff may need to review its internal coding policies to determine when this code will be reported on an inpatient claim.
