Adding Diagnosis Codes

Is there a way to increase the number of Diagnosis codes that I can add on the Fee Sheet?
It seems there is a limit?

Version Number: v5.0.2 (3)


Operating System
I’m using: Windows

The limit should be 12 due to the hcfa limitation where only 4 can be on a service line.

Hi Stephen and thanks for your reply.

When I am using the Fee Sheet I click on the ICD-10 to select the code:


When the box opens, I have several Diagnoses to choose from:


I would like to add more but it seems that I am limited. Is there a limit, and if so is there a way I can increase the limit?

I need to add about 4 more.

oh, ok, Admin->Lists-Fee Sheet?

Hi Folks-
Adding Admin-> Lists-> Fee Fheet is part of the process but it has a few more steps.
The complete answer is, OpenEMR has 2 different functionalities, one the older and less versatile but still might do you some good:

However, it has a serious limitation in that you can only use a code once on the fee sheet.
A newer capability is to make fee sheet categories which are v cool because you can use the same code in each of the fee sheet categories (those dropdowns on the fee sheet). And as far as I can tell, the size of the display wndow is the only limitation on the number of fee sheet codes you can create.

I wrote the docs and I think they’re pretty comprehensive, but feel free to ask me if something doesn’t make sense.

Hi Harley,

Thanks for your reply. You answered my question. The limitation is 15 for ICD-10 codes.


Hi @nursejeff thanks for the update, accurate information is always good to have.
