ICD-10:N95.9
Short Description:Unspecified menopausal and perimenopausal disorder
Long Description:Unspecified menopausal and perimenopausal disorder
Status: Valid for Submission
Version:ICD-10-CM 2023
Code Classification:

      • Menopausal and other perimenopausal disorders (N95)

N95.9 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of unspecified menopausal and perimenopausal disorder. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

This code is applicable to female patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient.

The code is commonly used in ob/gyn medical specialties to specify clinical concepts such as selected menopausal and other perimenopausal disorders.

Unspecified diagnosis codes like N95.9 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.

Menopause

Menopause is the time in a woman's life when her period stops. It usually occurs naturally, most often after age 45. Menopause happens because the woman's ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone.

A woman has reached menopause when she has not had a period for one year. Changes and symptoms can start several years earlier. They include:

Some symptoms require treatment. Talk to your doctor about how to best manage menopause. Make sure the doctor knows your medical history and your family medical history. This includes whether you are at risk for heart disease, osteoporosis, or breast cancer.
