Designate primary and secondary diagnosis
Add a space for primary diagnosis and a space for secondary diagnosis. In order to bill claims correctly, the first diagnosis on the initial diagnosis page is billed out to insurance as the primary diagnosis. If we accidentally have a substance use diagnosis on the list first, then it will get billed as the primary diagnosis and will get denied. We have to deleted all the diagnosis and make sure we add them in a specific order. If we had a space for primary diagnosis and a space for secondary diagnosis that would eliminate this problem.

Yes, I agree. This is very important! Ideally, you could enter all then diagnoses and then you could put them in order or assign them as primary, secondary, 3rd, 4th, etc.

For us, even if the first diagnosis is billable, any subsequent non-billable diagnoses cause our clearinghouse to reject the claim before sending it to the biller. We would like the ability to "check off" whether or not a diagnosis should be included on the claim.

Be able to easily re-order the diagnoses/diagnostic codes because this order matters in the DSM....when I have to go in and add and delete and jostle the codes around after a change is discovered, it creates havoc. So, a simple click and pull would be amazing.
