Good day-When it is documented as chronic back pain.. what is the correct DX code, would it be G89.29 and M54.9. Or just G89.29?

Hope you’re doing well!
Thank you for your question.
As per the above documentation, if the documentation states chronic back pain, report ICD-10 CM code G89.29 (Other chronic pain),
As per ICD-10 CM guidelines, chronic pain is classified to subcategory G89.2. There is no time frame defining when pain becomes chronic pain. The provider’s documentation should be used to guide use of these codes.
Hope that helps!
