Mechanical Diagnosis Process

Successful Documentation of Chiropractic Diagnosis

Following your performance of a complete history and thorough examination to assess your patient’s condition, the clinical process of chiropractic patient diagnosis will be defined.

Procedure for Code Selection

Next, the mechanical diagnosis converts the written diagnosis from your documentation and applies proper coding for billing purposes to any third-party payers. Throughout this process, complications may arise based on medical necessity requirements from third-party payers or possible errors or limitations during the conversion of the written (English) diagnoses into code. Keep in mind, the codes must match the diagnosis in your documentation and record the diagnosis hierarchy appropriately for submission.
