Thread: Icd-9?

    Default Icd-9?

    AAPC: Back to School

    I code MRI's for doctors that dictate findings as follows:

    Phase 1 pathophysiology of the chiropractic clinical diagnosis of vertebral subluxation complex

    Anyone have a ICD9 code for this?

    See the dislocation codes 830-839 for the appropriate area. 839.40 is vertebra, unspecified site.

    Default 800-900 entail injury

    Although with the insufficient documentation in your post "kandekane8", pathophysiological subluxation is not necessarily an injury but an abnormality due to a pathophysiological condition: 722.2(2008 code)
