Code Updates You Should Know!

We have some updated codes we thought were important for you to know.  The most significant coding update for most chiropractic and physical therapy clinics are:

Add:  G44.86– Cervicogenic Headache
Note:  When using the G44.86, you should also include an associated cervical spine condition, if known.

Add:  M54.50– Low back pain, unspecified

Add:  M54.51– Vertebrogenic low back pain

Add:  M54.59– Other low back pain

DO NOT USE: M54.5- Low back pain
Note: M54.50M54.51 or M54.59 is your replacement code.  You will most commonly use M54.59 when replacing the M54.5.

As we scanned through the list of new/deleted/updated codes we wanted to limit the number of codes to avoid overwhelming our clients, so we went through and created a list of the coding updates we felt were most significant.  Please take a moment and look them over and save them for future reference.

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, 2021.  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 our software and/or how to only start using the new codes after October 1st, please connect with your Money Tree Billing Client Contact to help you through the process.
