Code Classification

  • Mental and behavioural disorders (F00–F99)
    • Mental disorders due to known physiological conditions (F01-F09)
      • Other mental disorders due to known physiological condition (F06)

F06 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of other mental disorders due to known physiological condition. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

Specific Coding for Other mental disorders due to known physiological condition

Non-specific codes like F06 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for other mental disorders due to known physiological condition:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.0 for Psychotic disorder with hallucinations due to known physiological condition
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.1 for Catatonic disorder due to known physiological condition
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.2 for Psychotic disorder with delusions due to known physiological condition
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - F06.3 for Mood disorder due to known physiological condition
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.30 for Mood disorder due to known physiological condition, unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.31 for Mood disorder due to known physiological condition with depressive features
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.32 for Mood disorder due to known physiological condition with major depressive-like episode
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.33 for Mood disorder due to known physiological condition with manic features
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.34 for Mood disorder due to known physiological condition with mixed features
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.4 for Anxiety disorder due to known physiological condition
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use F06.8 for Other specified mental disorders due to known physiological condition

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code F06:


Includes

Includes
This note appears immediately under a three character code title to further define, or give examples of, the content of the category.

Code First

Code First
Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology. For such conditions, the ICD-10-CM has a coding convention that requires the underlying condition be sequenced first followed by the manifestation. Wherever such a combination exists, there is a "use additional code" note at the etiology code, and a "code first" note at the manifestation code. These instructional notes indicate the proper sequencing order of the codes, etiology followed by manifestation.

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Type 2 Excludes

Type 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.
