I needs some help with question regarding billing and coding for MAT service visits. Is anyone adding any supplemental status codes to those visits? At my clinic they are using F11.20 but is that the correct code to use as now on suboxone and if ok to use is it enough?
I was researching the status codes for a that population and suboxone treatment. By any chance does anyone know of a supplemental code that we should be suing. I suggested Z79.891- Long term (current) use of opiate analgesic to help support the visit but iIgot push back not to use. Could we use Z79.899 Other long term (current) drug therapy. Just not sure if F11.20 alone is sufficient.What do others do when addressing this type of encounter in the outpatient setting? Any and all feedback appreciatedJanet
