used to identify manifestation codes.
used in both the Alphabetic index and tabular list to enclose supplementary words that may be present in the statement of a disease or procedure without affecting the code number to which it is assigned.
used in the tabular list after an incomplete term which needs one or more of the modifiers following the colon to make it assignable to a given category
for use when the information in the medical record provides detail for which a specific code does not exist.
for use when the information in the medical record is insufficient to assign a more specific code.
appears under a three character code title to further define, or give examples of, the content of the category.
terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, list of the various conditions assigned to that code.
"not coded here" indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the note.
used when two conditions cannot occur together.
UPDATE 2016- can USE
"not included here" indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. when this note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together.

condition, diagnosis, problem
code ________________that coexist at the time of the encounter/visit and require or affect patient care treatment or management. do ______ code conditions that were previously treated and no longer exist. however, history codes may be used as secondary codes.
