What is the correct way to code L4-5 disc space annular tear? I have looked everywhere. The doctor has not specified that the patient had an accident. Just that the patient had tenderness over this part of the spine and that he did agree with the MRI which stated the annular tear. :confused:

Thanks,

Sherry

Hi,
