ICD-10-CM Code R76.11
Nonspecific reaction to tuberculin skin test without active tuberculosis
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
R76.11 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of nonspecific reaction to tuberculin skin test without active tuberculosis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code R761 is used to code Latent tuberculosis
A diagnosis of latent tuberculosis (LTB), also called latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) means a patient is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, but the patient does not have active tuberculosis. Active tuberculosis can be contagious while latent tuberculosis is not, and it is therefore not possible to get TB from someone with latent tuberculosis. The main risk is that approximately 10% of these patients (5% in the first two years after infection and 0.1% per year thereafter) will go on to develop active tuberculosis. This is particularly true, and there is added risk, in particular situations such as medication that suppresses the immune system or advancing age.
