Pain Management Coding
Pain management has a multi-disciplinary approach, and incorporates modalities from various specialties such as anesthesiology, internal medicine, neurology, neurological surgery, orthopedic surgery, physiatry, and psychiatry. Other factors that increase coding complexity for this specialty:
- Pain can be acute, chronic, or both, and related to a neoplasm, originate from the spine, or be part of a pain syndrome.
- More and more new and complex drugs, techniques, and technologies become available every year for the treatment of pain.
- ICD-10 has brought about changes in coding and reporting conventions, and need for increased specificity. More information is required to show medical necessity.
