Re: Diagnosis Codes

I really did some digging on internet for this. This are not diagnoses as such, but rather specific symptoms. The 729.1 is myalgia, 724.2 lumbago, 780.7 malaise/fatigue. I could not find 719.95, however 719 series has to do with pain in specific part of body. (TT)

Re: Diagnosis Codes

I knew TT would know because she does the med billing. I have a friend who also does this so I will ask her about that other code.

Re: Diagnosis Codes

Don't do medical billing, but medical transcription for hospital. You could not pay me enough to work in billing as you never hear anything good, but must listen to people complaining all day---kind of like us fibro people. However, I am curious and want to know everything. After all, I have to be able to challenge doctors and really tick them off. I told rheumatologist that I should have a Master degree in internet fibro. (TT)

Re: Diagnosis Codes

Thanks to everyone for your input!

TT - you seem to be very intelligent and insightful. I find your postings to be very helpful.

Everyone's postings have been so helpful. I'm glad to know that there are other people out there with the same feelings.

Thank you!
