ICD-10-CM Code M43
Other deforming dorsopathies

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 M43 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the nine child codes of M43 that describes the diagnosis 'other deforming dorsopathies' in more detail.

The ICD code M43 is used to code Spondyloarthropathy

Spondyloarthropathy or spondyloarthrosis refers to any joint disease of the vertebral column. As such, it is a class or category of diseases rather than a single, specific entity. It differs from spondylopathy, which is a disease of the vertebra itself. However, many conditions involve both spondylopathy and spondyloarthropathy.
