2015 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code M54.1
M54.1 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 9 codes below M54.1 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, M54.1 - 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 M54.1. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.
