Deactivate Diagnosis Code

You can deactivate a diagnosis code so that the code cannot be used when entering new encounters; you must have the appropriate permission level from your Kareo PM application administrator to do this. When rendering a diagnosis code inactive, the code will still remain within the database but will not be accessible when entering charges.

To deactivate a diagnosis code

  1. Click Settings > Codes > Find Diagnoses.
  2. Use the drop-down menu to switch the ICD-9 codes to ICD-10. 
  3. In the Look For search bar, enter all or part of a keyword. You can choose to search by Code, Official Name or Local Name.
  4. Once you find the code, double-click to open it.
  5. Uncheck the "Diagnosis is currently used" box.
