  • M93 should not be used for reimbursement purposes as there are multiple codes below it that contain a greater level of detail.
  • The 2023 edition of ICD-10-CM M93 became effective on October 1, 2022.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of M93 - other international versions of ICD-10 M93 may differ.

Type 2 Excludes Help
A type 2 excludes note represents "not included here". A type 2 excludes note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition it is excluded from but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When a type 2 excludes note appears under a code it is acceptable to use both the code (M93) and the excluded code together.
