    Does anyone have the link from medicare/cms for the ICD-9 codes that are covered for the 80101

    This is for the monitoring of patient compliance in a drug treatment or for chronic pain patients.

    If anyone can help me that would be a great help I am just going around in circles on the cms website.

    For Medicare patients you need to use the code G0431
    3/22/2010 - Per Transmittal R653OTN, "Effective April 1, 2010, CPT code 80101 will no longer be covered by Medicare.
