Top Billed Chiropractic Codes: ICD-9 to ICD-10 Conversion

Priority Health, a Michigan-based health plan, provides a valuable, free resource for chiropractors.

The one-page resource identifies top billed chiropractic ICD-9 codes, along with their general description, and then provides the corresponding ICD-10 diagnosis code(s).

Oct. 1, 2015 was recently confirmed as the new ICD-10 transition compliance date for healthcare providers.

The Priority Health resource provides the ICD-9 to ICD-10 conversion (pdf) for diagnoses that include:

  • Cervicalgia
  • Lumbago
  • Nonallopathic lesions of the head, cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral and pelvic region
  • Neck and lumbar sprains
  • Displacement of lumbar intervertebral disc without myelopathy
  • Closed dislocation of vertebra
