    2015 Non-Billable Code

  • C79.5 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 2 codes below C79.5 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
  • On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, C79.5 - and all other ICD-10-CM codes - should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of C79.5. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.
