S00.37XD is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other superficial bite of nose, subsequent encounter. The code S00.37XD is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.

S00.37XD is a subsequent encounter code, includes a 7th character and should be used after the patient has completed active treatment for a condition like other superficial bite of nose. According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "subsequent encounter" occurs when the patient is receiving routine care for the condition during the healing or recovery phase of treatment. Subsequent diagnosis codes are appropriate during the recovery phase, no matter how many times the patient has seen the provider for this condition. If the provider needs to adjust the patient's care plan due to a setback or other complication, the encounter becomes active again.

Information for Patients


Animal Bites

Wild animals usually avoid people. They might attack, however, if they feel threatened, are sick, or are protecting their young or territory. Attacks by pets are more common. Animal bites rarely are life-threatening, but if they become infected, you can develop serious medical problems.

To prevent animal bites and complications from bites

If an animal bites you, clean the wound with soap and water as soon as possible. Get medical attention if necessary.
