substance abuse disorder

I was wondering if any providers have ran into issues with billing when the diagnosis of a substance abuse disorder was listed.  I know it cannot be listed as a primary diagnosis. I would think as long as it is not a primary diagnosis, it shouldn't impact reimbursement.  

Has anyone ran into issues with this?

We have only had denials when clinicians have mistakenly put them as primary.
