ICD-10-CM Code J84.17
Other interstitial pulmonary diseases with fibrosis in diseases classified elsewhere
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
Manifestation CodeCertain ICD-10-CM codes identify an underlying condition known as an etiology code. Conditions that arise as a result of an underlying condition (etiology), are referred to as Manifestations. In ICD-10-CM, etiology codes must be coded first, followed by the manifestation codes. When a condition requires etiology and manifestation codes, there is a "use additional code" note following the etiology code and a "code first" note following the manifestation code.
J84.17 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other interstitial pulmonary diseases with fibrosis in diseases classified elsewhere. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
