ICD-10-CM Code T56.891

Toxic effect of other metals, accidental (unintentional)

Version 2020 Non-Billable Code Poisoning Accidental

Not Valid for Submission

T56.891 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of toxic effect of other metals, accidental (unintentional). The code is NOT valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code T56.891 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like accidental antimony compound overdose, accidental lithium overdose, accidental lithium poisoning, accidental poisoning by antimony compound, accidental poisoning by antimony fumes, accidental poisoning by brass fumes, etc

ICD-10:T56.891
Short Description:Toxic effect of other metals, accidental (unintentional)
