    We are going to start urine drug screens on our patients who are on pain meds. I am trying to find a dx code that I should use for these, but I not sure which one is the right one. Does anyone have any suggestions???

    Look at V58.83.

    Then, as your second diagnosis, use V58.6X to indicate the med they are on.
