ICD-10-CM Code R89.1

Abnormal level of hormones in specimens from other organs, systems and tissues

Version 2020 Billable Code No Valid Principal Dx

Valid for Submission

R89.1 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of abnormal level of hormones in specimens from other organs, systems and tissues. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code R89.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like abnormal 11-deoxy, 17-hydroxycorticosterone, abnormal 11-deoxycorticosterone, abnormal 17-ketogenic steroids, abnormal 17-ketosteroids, abnormal 3,3' diiodothyronine, abnormal adrenal cortical hormone, etc

According to ICD-10-CM guidelines this code should not to be used as a principal diagnosis code when a related definitive diagnosis has been established.
