    2015 Non-Billable Code Not A Principal Dx

  • W20.8 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 3 codes below W20.8 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
  • On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, W20.8 - 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 W20.8. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.

Type 1 Excludes
  • struck by thrown sports equipment (W21.-)
