Hearing loss due to tinnitus

August 29, 2016 @ 3:20 PM Reply  |  Email Friend   |  |Print  |  Top

Hi! I have a patient with service connected disability of tinnitus (entitled by the VA). He is been suffering of hearing loss and we has a prescription of hearing aids. The thing here is that, we will like to know which code clarifies about the hearing loss due to tinnitus. Would "Noise effect on inner ear" ICD-10: H83.3X be the right option, besides tinnitus (ICD-10: H93.1)???
Thanks in advance!
