Code Mapping is utilized to link an entered Diagnosis Code to the appropriate ICD-9 or ICD-10 Diagnosis Code. This may sound extraneous, but it ensures that the exact Diagnosis is described and referred to correctly on Claims and in other parts of MacPractice.
Billing diagnosis codes on a claim can be changed in the New Charge window by simply typing into the Diagnosis Code fields, or by clicking the search icon.
MacPractice will show when diagnosis codes need to be mapped to the selected code system by highlighting the Map Diagnoses.. button as shown above.
This is an example of the Code Mapping window. On the left side contains the current Diagnosis Code entered on a charge. On the right side are a list of options for how to handle this code to map it according to your Billing Diagnosis Coding Preference. For the example above, MacPractice is taking a ICD10 code, G43.B0, and presenting options for how to deal with this code, either skipping, choosing the recommended ICD9 equivalent, or choosing another ICD9 code to map it to.
Diagnosis codes will turn blue once they have been mapped to their interrelated code.
