Diagnostic and Coding Guidance

These documents were created to ensure that consistent diagnostic evaluation, documentation and coding practices are used throughout the DoD by BHD and FBN Audiology clinics, among audiologists and Hearing Health Technicians, as well as by providers who evaluate and treat auditory/vestibular disorders. This will help to ensure that meaningful and correct data is being captured in the Joint Hearing Loss and Auditory System Injury Registry (JHASIR).
