2020 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code T85.692

Other mechanical complication of permanent sutures

    2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code
  • T85.692 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 T85.692 became effective on October 1, 2019.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of T85.692 - other international versions of ICD-10 T85.692 may differ.
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 T85.692. 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.
