Valid for Submission
F60.9 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of personality disorder, unspecified. The code F60.9 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code F60.9 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like drug-induced personality disorder, personality disorder, personality trait causing social impairment or psychopathic personality trait.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like F60.9 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
