Migraine headaches are a complex and often chronic condition that can vary from person to person. Types of migraines include migraine without aura, migraine with aura, chronic migraine, menstrual migraine, and status migrainosus. It’s essential for healthcare professionals to accurately document the type and severity of migraine headaches to ensure the correct ICD-10-CM codes are assigned. Accurate medical coding is crucial for proper billing, insurance claims, and maintaining patient records. The specific code assigned to a patient’s condition will depend on various factors, including the type of migraine, severity, and any associated symptoms.
