ICD-9 adjustment disorder ICD-9-CM codes are used by doctors to characterize illnesses, diseases, injuries, symptoms and afflictions.

What is CPT ®?
The difference between ICD-9 and CPT codes is that ICD-9 codes are used to describe the problem or the reason for the procedure.

Medical coding is made up of 3 categories. These universal coding categories are intended to explain both what and why for any medical procedure or encounter. If done correctly, the codes themselves replace the need for a narrative. I like to look at the Why, before the What. Why do I believe this procedure has Medical Necessity? If the patient is suffering from certain health conditions i.e., Diabetes, Heart Failure, Pregnancy, Sleep Apnea, Acid Reflux or Infection or certain symptoms i.e., Dry Mouth, Pain, Loss of Function, Bone Atrophy or Loss of Teeth, then I can start to travel down the medical billing path.
Many insurances require a CPT code to be used, while others will accept CDT codes or certain procedures. However, as of October 2018, CDT codes, or D codes, will not be accepted by medical payers. This means that EVERY procedure code must be submitted with a CPT code.
