Coding additional ICD-9 diagnoses for reporting only.
A couple of Medicaid HMOs in New Jersey have asked that we report chronic conditions such as CP and other disabilities as billing codes. What CPT® code should I use to link these additional diagnoses with if 4 diagnoses are already used? The additional ICD-9 codes would be only for reporting, not payment. The state reimburses them based partly on such conditions. Or might there be another way to report these additional diagnoses?
