ICD Code T50.905 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use specify a 7th character that describes the diagnosis 'adverse effect of unsp drug/meds/biol subst' 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 T50.905A initial encounter
D T50.905D subsequent encounter
S T50.905S sequela

What is 7th Character Extension?

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
