Z-codes- are some billable?

The ICD10Data.com site says this about the bereavement Z-code;

  • Z63.4 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes
  • That makes me think I CAN bill it. The client's Mental Health benefit detail link(BCBS,Availity) says that marriage counseling(another Z-code) is NOT covered but doesn't mention bereavement counseling.
  • Is there some unwritten rule about Z-codes that I don't know about?
