Billing Ingrown Nail under the new ICD-10 Codes

It seems as though the ingrown toenail codes that are billable to the highest level of specificity  right now are for the right and left great toenails.  I guess this is not that big of a deal, considering most of the ingrown toenails are usually the big toenails.  The old code for ingrown toenail was 703.0 is now L60.0 there is no laterality with this code but I would use this code with the other ones suggested next.  The old code for paronychia or infected ingrown nail was 681.11.  The new ICD-10 code has laterality but only for the great toes.  Right great toe infected ingrown toe nail is L03.031 and left is L03.032.  So if you are billing a 11730 or a 11750 the modifier for the toe should still be used on the CPT code.

Billing 11730 or 11750

Use the following codes:
L60.0- Ingrown Nail
L03.031- if right hallux  modifier on CPT code T5
L03.032- if left hallux    modifier on CPT code TA
M79.609 which is just pain in limb this is the unspecified pain in limb because there is no pain in limb in foot or toes specific.

This is pretty straightforward information, so far as it looks in the new world of ICD-10.  Again, in our practice, this is a procedure that we perform several times throughout the day.  I suggest knowing what you do every day inside out.  The more common things should be well established in your mind before October 1st, 2015 so this transition is smooth for you.  If you have a good EMR you will be able to look up the specific code translation from ICD9 to ICD10, and there are so many nice resources available on the web for your reference for the "zebras" that walk into your office.  Remember, know your codes for plantar fasciitis/heel pain, diabetic foot care, ingrown nails, and the other most common patients you see a day.  There is a lot of transparency in what we do, but in a good way.  Many people come to us for very simple problems and we have simple answers to help them in usually a very cost effective way.

    1. THIS IS GENUINE. NO SCAM. Hi! My name is Myriam Boyer. I want to tell my testimony to the whole world how this great and powerful man called great baba helped me to bring back my partner. My man left me for another lady for five years. I almost gave up until my friend advised me and introduced me to this great man whom she met on the internet. I never believed at first but she encouraged me and i tried to believe and contacted him on his email. I told and explained everything to him and he assured me that he will help me and that i should not worry too much. I believed him and i did all that he asked me to do which i did and it work perfectly and my husband came back to me begging for forgiveness. I am so happy and excited now. I discovered that when my husband came back he even loved me more than the way he used to love me before he left me. great baba opened up his eyes to see how much i love him and how much love we ought to share together as one.

    actually M79.674 or M79.675 would be more accurate than your unspecified code as they are pain in toe right and left respectively which is the more accurate and specific. Using an unspecified code when an existing code is available and correct is asking for problems down the road.

  3. Great article! I hope this helps a lot of women and men out there.

    Fix your marriage and relationship after a breakup or divorce, 100% guarantee Love spell..! A very big problem occurred in my Marriage seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited. I sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he is coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there if you have any problem contact Dr Trust, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you.. Email him at:

  5. I AM SO HAPPY DR TRUST, MY HUSBAND IS BACK.

    I completely trusted Dr Trust totally from the time I spoke with him during the period my husband Left me after 11 years of our marriage, He started the spell work on my husband, and gave me so much assurance and guaranteed me that he was going to bring my husband back to my feet in just 48 hours of the spell casting. I was so confident in his work and just as he said in the beginning, my husband is finally back to me again, yes he is back with all his hearts, Love, care, emotions and flowers and things are better now. I would have no hesitation to recommend this powerful spell caster to anybody who is in need of help..
