L97.916 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of non-pressure chronic ulcer of unspecified part of right lower leg with bone involvement without evidence of necrosis. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like L97.916 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.
