Specific code icon 2015 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code Y09

Assault by unspecified means

    2015 Billable Code Not A Principal Dx

  • Y09 describes the circumstance causing an injury, not the nature of the injury, and therefore should not be used as a principal diagnosis.
  • Y09 is a billable ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
  • On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, Y09 - 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 Y09. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.
