This the best tool for searching an ICD 10 code. Once, you click this tool you will be taken to the search page as shown in below image. Now, just go ahead and type your diagnosis or disorder. Once, you start typing, the Click-A-Dex tool will start suggesting ICD 10 codes in the bottom. This is really an easy and friendly tool to use for ICD 10 codes.
Map a Code
This tool gives a lot of option to map ICD 9, ICD 10 or CPT code to other platform. Once you click Map a code tool, you will be taken to page as shown in below image.
Here, you have lot of option to Map ICD or CPT codes to different medical codes. Now, for example if we choose to map CPT/HCPCS code to CCS (Clinical Classification for services) codes, you have to enter the code in the box and click Map codes as shown below.
Once, you enter the codes and click Map codes, you will see the map CCS code in the bottom as shown above. This is just example, these features are hardly available anywhere. You can use all these features for free, for 28 days of your trial version.
Code status is also a good option for checking the status of a CPT code. If it is active, the tool will show it as active, and if it is deleted it will show as deleted. For example, I have entered CPT code 62311, (deleted in 2017) for checking the status. You can see in the below image, the status of CPT code 62311 is shown as deleted.
NCCI edit tool
This my favorite tool because I love using modifiers. When you get edit between two or more codes, you can just go ahead and feed those CPT codes in the box for NCCI edit check as shown below. Here, for example, I have added 71010, 71020 and 71035 CPT code for checking the edits between them. Once I click Validate, I get the results in the bottom.
As you can see below, the result of NCCI edit for the above three CPT codes. The CPT code 71010 has edit with 70120. If we do not use modifier with CPT code 71010, only CPT code 71020 will be paid. Hence, this is the easiest tool to use for finding the edits between CPT codes.
Do use this trail version of Findacode, it will be really helpful for you to get more information on other fields in medical coding.
