    Default 80101 - ICD-9 codes that support medical necessity

    AAPC: Back to School
    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.

    Search the local and national coverage determinations database

    Here is the link for Medicare's National Coverage Determination Database


    Be sure to check with your fiscal intermediary for your region regarding local coverage determinations.

    If it is for monitoring for compliance with prescribe treatment then how about V58.83 followed bu V58.69, this what we always use and there has never been a problem.
