2014 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code W50.2
Accidental twist by another person
W50.2 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 3 codes below W50.2 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
ICD-10-CM codes become active beginning October 1, 2014, therefore, this and all ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
