    2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 Billable/Specific Code Adult Dx (15-124 years)
  • J60 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
  • The 2020 edition of ICD-10-CM J60 became effective on October 1, 2019.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of J60 - other international versions of ICD-10 J60 may differ.
ICD-10-CM Coding Rules
  • J60 is applicable to adult patients aged 15 - 124 years inclusive.
Applicable To
  • Anthracosilicosis
  • Anthracosis
  • Black lung disease
  • Coalworker's lung
Type 1 Excludes
Type 1 Excludes Help
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes. It means "not coded here". A type 1 excludes note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as J60. A type 1 excludes note is for used for when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

    • asthma (J45.-)
    • malignant neoplasm of bronchus and lung (C34.-)
    Lung diseases due to external agents
Approximate Synonyms
  • Anthracosis
  • Coal workers' pneumoconiosis
Clinical Information
  • A chronic lung disorder characterized by deposition of coal dust in the lung parenchyma leading to the formation of black nodules and emphysema. It occurs in coal miners.
  • A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by accumulation of inhaled carbon or coal dust. The disease can progress from asymptomatic anthracosis to massive lung fibrosis. This lung lesion usually occurs in coal miners, but can be seen in urban dwellers and tobacco smokers.
  • A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of dust that contains both carbon and crystalline silicon dioxide. These foreign matters induce fibrous nodule formation in the lung.
ICD-10-CM J60 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v37.0):
  • 196 Interstitial lung disease with mcc
  • 197 Interstitial lung disease with cc
  • 198 Interstitial lung disease without cc/mcc
