Understanding Diagnostic Chiropractic Codes and How They Relate to Chiropractic Medicine
The “ICD” in ICD coding stands for International Classification of Diseases. This system assigns an alpha-numeric code to all possible diseases and injuries, spanning all fields and disciplines that fall within the broad scope of the medical profession.
Accurate ICD coding is essential for insurance company reimbursement. The challenge for chiropractors has always been to sort through the exhaustive list of codes to find the ones relative to the needs of their patients. Failure to correctly identify proper chiropractic codes could lead to non-reimbursement, or unnecessary hassle. This problem becomes compounded when coding unexpectedly changes and your coding is suddenly deemed out-of-date by an insurance provider.
ICD 9, the currently used version of the International Classification of Diseases, is the 9th revision of the original version that was adopted by the United States in 1979. Current and future health care demands are broader in scope, but require more overall specificity when it comes to coding.
While ICD 9 was primarily focused on reimbursement, ICD 10 is an attempt to utilize this system for assessing the overall quality of care by tracking various diagnoses within the framework of their social and situational context. In essence, the inherent limitations of ICD 9 coding not only get in the way of proving the best care for the patient, it is also limited in its ability to code for the severity of an illness, which all-too-often leads to payment errors and processing delays.
ICD 10 seeks to mitigate these issues by increasing the overall number of codes, but if you’re not prepared for the upcoming switch to ICD 10, you could easily find yourself well behind the learning curve, especially when it comes to chiropractic codes.
