Hello - I code for ENT & Audiology. What dx code would you use
if a pt arrived for suspected hearing loss and after tests were completed it was determined there was no hearing loss? Thank you, Sheri

There are V codes for Exam of ears and hearing...V72.1x. Some insurances do not like to pay for this diagnosis so if there are any other symptom codes (i.e. sudden hearing loss, tinnitus, etc) I would use one of those instead.

do any of you know of a Dx code for hearing testing when it is a screen such as for entrance to military or military acadamies? Would it be appropriate to use a V-code in this situation?
