    Hi Paul - You can always edit a diagnosis and backdate it so that it appears before another diagnosis you entered. To edit a diagnosis, find it on your client's Overview page, place your cursor over it, then click on the Edit icon that appears to the right. Now, you can change the date on the diagnosis.

    Here are more instructions on editing a diagnosis: Editing, printing, or deleting a diagnosis & treatment plan

    I have a similar question (possibly the same if I'm reading it correctly), if my client has multiple diagnoses, is it possible to reorder them? For example, my client has OCD, GAD, MDD listed in that order, but I realize that I wanted GAD first (as the primary diagnosis), MDD second, and OCD third. Is there a way to reorder without having to delete a diagnosis and associated goals and re-enter them?

    I also have this issue - because we are a specialty group we often have to add un-billable T and Z codes to specify what we are working with the client on, in addition to a billable F dx. Is it possible to make any reorder button? If not, we have to erase the dx and tx plan, which is a hassle just so that they appear in the correct order on the claim (or they'll be denied). 

    This seems like an easy fix that would make filing claims a lot easier. Can SP add this function?

    Also, Ruth's method doesn't really work because most of our dx's are created together on one tx plan. There is not a way to unlink them from one another to backdate and make one or the other appear first.

    I'm new to SP, so I thought that I missed something - thanks for confirming, Devin. A re-order button would definitely be helpful. If I remember correctly, when I used TherapyNotes at my last practice, it allowed reordering (much easier for T and Z codes).

    Hi Everyone, thanks for your input! You're right, there's no way to reorder multiple diagnoses entered together. Also, we don't include un-billable codes in order to avoid insurance billing issues when customers submit claims. We're always looking for ways to improve our platform and add the most value to our customers, so please share your feature requests with our Product Team and other customers on our Ideas and Suggestions Board, here: http://simplepractice.uservoice.com/ !

    I am wondering if there has been any progress made on this requested change to reorder the diagnostic codes?
