Valid for Submission
H95.819 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of postprocedural stenosis of unspecified external ear canal. The code H95.819 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code H95.819 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acquired stenosis of external ear canal, acquired stenosis of external ear canal secondary to surgery, stenosis of external auditory canal caused by ionizing radiation or stenosis of external auditory canal due to and after radiation therapy.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like H95.819 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acquired stenosis of external ear canal
- Acquired stenosis of external ear canal secondary to surgery
- Stenosis of external auditory canal caused by ionizing radiation
- Stenosis of external auditory canal due to and after radiation therapy
