ICD-10-CM Code R25.3
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
R25.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of fasciculation. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code R253 is used to code Fasciculation
A fasciculation /fəˌsɪkjᵿˈleɪʃən/, or muscle twitch, is a small, local, involuntary muscle contraction and relaxation which may be visible under the skin. Deeper areas can be detected by EMG testing, though they can happen in any skeletal muscle in the body. Fasciculations arise as a result of spontaneous depolarization of a lower motor neuron leading to the synchronous contraction of all the skeletal muscle fibers within a single motor unit. An example of normal spontaneous depolarization is the constant contractions of cardiac muscle, causing the heart to beat. Usually, intentional movement of the involved muscle causes fasciculations to cease immediately, but they may return once the muscle is at rest again.
