ICD-10-CM Code C90
Multiple myeloma and malignant plasma cell neoplasms
Non-Billable CodeNon-Billable means the code is not sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis. Use a child code to capture more detail.
ICD Code C90 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the four child codes of C90 that describes the diagnosis 'multiple myeloma and malignant plasma cell neoplasms' in more detail.
- C90 Multiple myeloma and malignant plasma cell neoplasms NON-BILLABLE
- C90.0 Multiple myeloma NON-BILLABLE
- C90.1 cell NON-BILLABLE
- C90.2 NON-BILLABLE
- C90.3 NON-BILLABLE
The ICD code C90 is used to code Plasma cell dyscrasia
Plasma cell dyscrasias are disorders of the plasma cells. Plasma cell dyscrasias are produced as a result of abnormal proliferation of a monoclonal population of plasma cells that may or may not secrete detectable levels of a monoclonal immunoglobulin or immunoglobulin fragment (paraprotein or M protein). Although the most common plasma cell dyscrasia is monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), closely related disorders include multiple myeloma, solitary plasmacytoma of bone, extramedullary plasmacytoma, Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM), primary amyloidosis, light chain deposition disease, paraproteinemia, and heavy-chain disease. The spectrum of MGUS, solitary plasmacytoma of bone, and asymptomatic and symptomatic multiple myeloma may actually represent a natural progression of the same disease.
