724.03

NGS Medicare postes "Local Coverage Determination and Article Revisions Effective October 2010:revised for annual ICD-9-CM code updates for 2011. ICD-9-CM code 724.03 has been added for CPT codes 0171T and 0172T effective for dates of service 10/01/2010 and after." Can't find definition of this code in your ICD-9 look up. I presume it refers to back pain, but to what specifically does it pertain.

724.03 Spinal stenosis, lumbar region, with neurogenic claudication

724.03 Spinal stenosis, lumbar region, with neurogenic claudication (effective 10/1/2011)

I believe 724.02 has been revised to state Spinal stenosis, lumbar region, WITHOUT neurogenic claudication (effective 10/1/2011)
