NEC “Not elsewhere classifiable” This abbreviation in the Alphabetic Index represents “other specified”.When a specific code is not available for a condition, the Alphabetic Index directs the coder to the “other specified” code in the Tabular List.
The conventions, general guidelines and chapter-specific guidelines are applicable to all health care settings unless otherwise indicated. The conventions and instructions of the classification take precedence over guidelines.

If severe sepsis is present, a code from subcategory R65.2, Severe sepsis, and code(s) for associated organ dysfunction(s) should also be assigned as additional diagnoses.
Do not code diagnoses documented as “probable”, “suspected,” “questionable,” “rule out ,” or “working diagnosis” or other similar terms indicating uncertainty. Rather, code the condition(s) to the highest degree of certainty for that encounter/visit, such as symptoms, signs, abnormal test results, or other reason for the visit.
