Version 2019 Non-Billable Code Poisoning Intentional
ICD-10:T57.0X2
Short Description:Toxic effect of arsenic and its compounds, self-harm
Long Description:Toxic effect of arsenic and its compounds, intentional self-harm

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10 T57.0X2 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 arsenic and its compounds, intentional self-harm. The code is NOT valid for the year 2019 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

Consider the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity:

  • T57.0X2A - Toxic effect of arsenic and its compounds, intentional self-harm, initial encounter
  • T57.0X2D - Toxic effect of arsenic and its compounds, intentional self-harm, subsequent encounter
  • T57.0X2S - Toxic effect of arsenic and its compounds, intentional self-harm, sequela

Code Classification

  • Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes (S00–T98)
    • Toxic effects of substances chiefly nonmedicinal as to source (T51-T65)
      • Toxic effect of other inorganic substances (T57)

Diagnostic Related Groups

The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC). The diagnosis code T57.0X2 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V36.0 applicable from 10/01/2018 through 09/30/2019.

  • 917 - POISONING AND TOXIC EFFECTS OF DRUGS WITH MCC
  • 918 - POISONING AND TOXIC EFFECTS OF DRUGS WITHOUT MCC
  • 922 - OTHER INJURY, POISONING AND TOXIC EFFECT DIAGNOSES WITH MCC
  • 923 - OTHER INJURY, POISONING AND TOXIC EFFECT DIAGNOSES WITHOUT MCC
  • 949 - AFTERCARE WITH CC/MCC
  • 950 - AFTERCARE WITHOUT CC/MCC

Synonyms

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms:

  • Self poisoning by arsenic or its compounds
  • Self poisoning by non-drug solid or liquid agents

Table of Drugs and Chemicals

The code T57.0X2 is included 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. Each substance in the table is assigned a code according to the poisoning classification and external causes of adverse effects. Use as many codes as necessary to describe all reported drugs, medicinal or chemical substances.

Information for Patients


Arsenic

Arsenic is a natural element found in soil and minerals. Arsenic compounds are used to preserve wood, as pesticides, and in some industries. Arsenic can get into air, water, and the ground from wind-blown dust. It may also get into water from runoff.

You may be exposed to arsenic by

  • Taking in small amounts in food, drinking water, or air
  • Breathing sawdust or burning smoke from arsenic-treated wood
  • Living in an area with high levels of arsenic in rock
  • Working in a job where arsenic is made or used

Exposure to arsenic can cause many health problems. Being exposed to low levels for a long time can change the color of your skin. It can cause corns and small warts. Exposure to high levels of arsenic can cause death.

General Equivalence Map Definitions
The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set. The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.

  • Approximate Flag - The approximate flag is on, indicating that the relationship between the code in the source system and the code in the target system is an approximate equivalent.
  • No Map Flag - The no map flag indicates that a code in the source system is not linked to any code in the target system.
  • Combination Flag - The combination flag indicates that more than one code in the target system is required to satisfy the full equivalent meaning of a code in the source system.
