    Answer When the doctor finds no pathology, code the systemic disease, such as L93.0 Lupus or M06.09 Rheumatoid arthritis. ICD-10's Z79.899 Other long term current drug therapy should be linked to any tests performed. You may also add it to the exam for supporting documentation. Answer When billing Plaquenil examinations, or any other high risk medication exams, it is appropriate to bill the systemic disease or any ocular manifestations as the primary diagnosis since many payers may not reimburse for the high-risk medication diagnosis as a stand-alone diagnosis. Testing services performed should have the high-risk medication diagnosis as the primary diagnosis since that is the reason for the testing. The ICD-10 section that covers long-term drug therapy is Z79, with many subsections and specific diagnosis codes. Because Plaquenil does not have its own specific category, clinicians should use Z79.899—Other Long Term Current Drug Therapy. But getting the right code is just one step in the process of correctly documenting the encounter.

    For example, it may be combined with an antibiotic to treat chronic Q-fever, which humans usually catch from farm animals or raw milk. Plaquenil is used to treat other types of infections too.
