    P atients taking Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine, Sanofi-Aventis on a long-term basis may leave you scratching your head when it comes to coding the patient encounters. Although coding for long-term medications is not a difficult process, it often involves communicating with other physicians or specialists to obtain accurate inform H35.389 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.

    The study was a Kaiser Permanente retrospective case-control study that examined 2361 patients who had used hydroxychloroquine continuously for at least 5 years according to pharmacy records and who were evaluated with visual field testing or spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. Question How should we code exams for patients on high-risk medications in ICD-10? Answer When the doctor finds no pathology, code the systemic disease, such as L93.0 Lupus or M06.09 Rheumatoid arthritis.
