N89.3 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of dysplasia of vagina, unspecified. The code N89.3 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 N89.3 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like dysplasia of vagina, noninflammatory disorder of the vagina or vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia.
The code N89.3 is applicable to female patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like N89.3 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.
