Thread: Code for partially dislodged belly button ring?

    Default Code for partially dislodged belly button ring?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have an ER chart with a patient with partially dislodged belly button ring...any ideas on how to code this?

  2. #2


    I would code that as a foreign body of the skin, 911.6, since the belly button ring is a foreign agent that is not a normal anatomical occurrence. It's an alien to the body, in other words.
