Long Description:Toxic effect of homologues of benzene, undetermined
Status: Not Valid for Submission
Version:ICD-10-CM 2023
Code Classification:
  • Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes (S00–T98)

The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

The appropriate 7th character is to be added to each code from block Toxic effect of organic solvents (T52). Use the following options for the aplicable episode of care:

Specific Coding for Toxic effect of homologues of benzene, undetermined

Non-specific codes like T52.2X4 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for toxic effect of homologues of benzene, undetermined:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T52.2X4A for initial encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T52.2X4D for subsequent encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T52.2X4S for sequela

Table of Drugs and Chemicals

The code is referenced in the Table of Drugs and Chemicals, this table contains a classification of drugs, industrial solvents, corrosive gases, noxious plants, pesticides, and other toxic agents.

According to ICD-10 coding guidelines it is advised to do not code directly from the Table of Drugs and Chemicals, instead always refer back to the Tabular List when doing the initial coding. Each substance in the table is assigned a code according to the poisoning classification and external causes of adverse effects. It is important to use as many codes as necessary to specify all reported drugs, medicinal or chemical substances. If the same diagnosis code describes the causative agent for more than one adverse reaction, poisoning, toxic effect or underdosing, utilize the code only once.
