    Billing & Coding • Master the billing and coding puzzle. • Perhaps you can make more by seeing less patients • A doctor with poor billing/coding skills and sees more patients ie 30 patients may make the same $$$ as a doctor with great billing/coding skills but sees less patients ie 15 patients • “Work smarter, not harder!” Jun 12, 2013 For the diagnosis code, use V58.69 long-term current use; of other medications for the primary diagnosis, and then the diagnosis code which applies to the systemic condition for which the patient is taking Plaquenil e.g. 714.2, other rheumatoid arthritis with visceral systemic involvement. For the baseline exam done before the patient is. In those cases, include the EO in the E/M office visit or eye code, and code according to the total service rendered and documented in the visit, as well as the visual field code. The diagnosis codes depend on whether the patient is now taking Plaquenil. If the patient has used the drug in the past but is no longer using it, code V67.51.

    I am also on low dose prednisone, I have taken prrednisone daily for 18 months at levels ranging from 2.5 mg to 5 mg...periodic boosts to 60 mg with a fast taper back down to 5 mg. I would like to make sure they continue to follow the proper guidelines.

    Does Plaquenil cause fatigue or fever? - Rheumatoid Arthritis Hi everyone, I have fibro and RS and Sjoegren's. I have been on Plaquenil for a little over 2 months now. I can say that I am not having pain like I used to, and I am so grateful for that! The problem now is the undending fatigue! I don't know if this is just the RA in full swing, or if it is a side effect of the Plaquenil.
