Wait, I don't see this definition in my ICD-10 =

".22 Currently on a clinically supervised maintenance or replacement regime"

My book says F11.22 is "Opioid dependence with intoxication". Where did you get that code definition?

F11.20 includes "Opioid dependence, on agonist therapy" in its definition. That's what I use, too.

Yet another reason to go direct-pay. ICD = Incredibly Complicated Drivel. F11.22 certainly looks appropriate for buprenorphine treatment, whether it's billable or not is another question.

just to clarify we use f11.20 and then in the modifier and comments section adding "in remission on partial agonist"
