Is there a diagnosis for "personal history of scoliosis"?

Bernadette Posted Mon 11th of January, 2016 11:21:49 AM

Hi,

We saw a 21 year old patient for her physical and we were wondering if there was a diagnosis code for personal history of scoliosis. If she still has an elevation, would we use just a scoliosis diagnosis?

Thanks for your help!

Use diagnosis code for Scoliosis from the range M41.22, M41.23 ,M41.24, M41.25, M41.26,M41.27 alongwith Z98.1 i.e history code for Scoliosis.
