ICD-10-CM Code J62.8
Pneumoconiosis due to other dust containing silica

Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

J62.8 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of pneumoconiosis due to other dust containing silica. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code J628 is used to code Chalicosis

Chalicosis (Greek, χάλιξ, gravel), sometimes called flint disease, is a form of pneumoconiosis affecting the lungs or bronchioles, found chiefly among stonecutters.

Specialty: Pulmonology
