K62.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of rectal prolapse. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code K623 is used to code Rectal prolapse
Used unqualified, the term rectal prolapse often is used synonymously with complete rectal prolapse (external rectal prolapse), where the rectal walls have prolapsed to a degree where they protrude out the anus and are visible outside the body. However, most researchers agree that there are 3 to 5 different types of rectal prolapse, depending on if the prolapsed section is visible externally, and if the full or only partial thickness of the rectal wall is involved.
