ICD Code T67.0 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use specify a 7th character that describes the diagnosis 'heatstroke and sunstroke' 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

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

The ICD code T670 is used to code Heat stroke

Heat stroke, also known as sun stroke, is a severe heat illness, defined as hyperthermia with a body temperature greater than 40.6 °C (105.1 °F) because of environmental heat exposure with lack of thermoregulation. This is distinct from a fever, where there is a physiological increase in the temperature set point of the body. The term "stroke" in "heat stroke" is a misnomer in that it does not involve a blockage or hemorrhage of blood flow to the brain. Preventive measures include drinking plenty of cool liquids and avoiding excessive heat and humidity, especially in unventilated spaces such as parked cars that can overheat quickly. Treatment requires rapid physical cooling of the body.
