To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use specify a 7th character that describes the diagnosis 'poisoning by cardi-stim glycos/drug simlar act, accidental' in more detail. The 7th characters that can be added, and the resulting billable codes, are as follows:


7th Digit Billable Code 7th Digit Specifies
A T46.0X1A initial encounter
D T46.0X1D subsequent encounter

For codes less than 6 characters that require a 7th character a placeholder 'X' should be assigned for all characters less than 6. The 7th character must always be the 7th position of a code. E.g. The ICD-10-CM code T67.4 (Heat exhaustion due to salt depletion) requires an Episode of Care identifier. T67.4XXA Initial Encounter or T67.4XXD Subsequent Encounter. More Info
