Use Alternate Procedure Codes in Charting

How to select an alternate procedure code to reflect the intent of the service in charting.

Selecting a Code

The code that is usually the most appropriate for any clinical service is set up in the Topic Editor. There may be occasions when the default code for the selected service does not accurately reflect the intent of the service. In those cases, the therapist may select a different code from a list of secondary codes that are allowed for the service.

To select another allowed code, right click on the default code in the grid and select the appropriate alternate code as illustrated.

See Manage Procedure Codes for more information on how to add procedure codes to items in the Topic Editor.
