Elongated Toenails

What diagnosis code do you use for elongated toenails? When you research L60.3 comes up which is dystrophy nails? What is not dystrophic just long?

Thanks
Happy Thanksgiving

re: Elongated Toenails

Non- dystrophic nails are generally considered bundled with other services such as the E/M Visit. If they are dystrophic, there are other codes that must be considered such as a systemic disease, an illness, or accident, this is generally the only reason cutting or trimming of non-dystrophic may be covered. I would suggest reviewing the policy or LCD pertaining to the payer being billed. Those may be billed with G0127 or 11719, then any nail disorders are coded under L60.-

I hope this helps.
