Migraine codes in ICD10

    Default Migraine codes in ICD10

    One of my providers is questioning which migraine code to use for Chronic Migraine with Aura....there are codes for Chronic migraine without aura (G43.7--), which is obviously wrong, and then Migraine with aura (G43.1--), which doesn't specify Chronic. Is this the best choice? Or should he use Other migraine (G43.80/1--)?

    Appreciate any feedback anyone may have.

    I'm using G43.10_ since it includes migraine with aura NOS. Anybody else using something different?
