ICD-10-CM Code J96
Respiratory failure, not elsewhere classified

Non-Billable Code
Non-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-10 from 2011 - 2016

ICD Code J96 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the four child codes of J96 that describes the diagnosis 'respiratory failure, not elsewhere classified' in more detail.

The ICD code J96 is used to code Hypoxia (medical)

Hypoxia (also known as hypoxiation) is a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply. Hypoxia may be classified as either generalized, affecting the whole body, or local, affecting a region of the body. Although hypoxia is often a pathological condition, variations in arterial oxygen concentrations can be part of the normal physiology, for example, during hypoventilation training or strenuous physical exercise.

Specialty: Pulmonology, Toxicology
