2020 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code J69

Pneumonitis due to solids and liquids

    2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code
  • J69 should not be used for reimbursement purposes as there are multiple codes below it that contain a greater level of detail.
  • The 2020 edition of ICD-10-CM J69 became effective on October 1, 2019.
