W90.0XXD is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of exposure to radiofrequency, subsequent encounter. The code W90.0XXD is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code W90.0XXD might also be used to specify conditions or terms like overexposure to radar radiation, overexposure to radiation, overexposure to radioactive isotopes, overexposure to radiofrequency radiation or overexposure to radiopharmaceuticals. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
W90.0XXD is a subsequent encounter code, includes a 7th character and should be used after the patient has completed active treatment for a condition like exposure to radiofrequency. 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.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Overexposure to radar radiation
- Overexposure to radiation
- Overexposure to radioactive isotopes
- Overexposure to radiofrequency radiation
- Overexposure to radiopharmaceuticals

Convert W90.0XXD to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code W90.0XXD its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs), also called radiation, are areas of energy that surround electrical devices. Everyday sources of EMFs include
- Power lines
- Electrical wiring
- Microwave ovens
- Cell phones
Some people worry about EMF exposure and cancer. Some studies have found a link between EMF exposure and a higher risk of childhood leukemia, but other studies have not. Other studies have not found proof that EMF exposure causes other childhood cancers. Studies in adults did not prove that EMF exposure causes cancer.
Some people worry that cell (wireless) phones cause cancer or other health problems. The phones do give off radiofrequency energy (RF), a form of electromagnetic radiation. So far, scientific evidence has not found a link between cell phone use and health problems in humans. However, scientists need to do more research on this before they can say for sure. If you are worried about avoiding any possible risks, you can limit your exposure by
- Reducing the amount of time you spend using your cell phone
- Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between your head and the cell phone
