We have some updated codes that we thought were important for you to know. The most significant coding update for most chiropractic and physical therapy clinics is the conversion of the R51 headache code to a parent code. You are no longer allowed to use the R51 code,however they did replace it with 2 new headache codes. We have shared them below so you can take note for future use.
The new codes are…
R51.0– Headache with orthostatic component, not elsewhere classified
R51.9– Headache, unspecified
If you are wondering about any other codes, please reach out to us and we would be happy to help you.
Please note, the new codes are not effective until October 1st, 2020. All services prior to October 1st must still bill with the old codes.
Money Tree Billing Clients: If you are unsure of how to add the codes to your software and/or how to only start using the new codes after October 1st, please connect with your MTB Client Contact to help you through the process.
