  1. Thanks so very much to ALL who have taken the time to provide your answer to my question. I will go to the web pages that have been provided and check out the information. Thanks again, Don
  2. Where do I find the Diagnostic code the VA uses to determine my benefits? Do I submit these codes on my application for my service connected disability?
  3. On the Disability Benefits Questionnaire for my Doctor to complete (VA Form 21-0960N-1) (DBQ). It says select the veterans condition and then it has ICD code & Date of diagnosis. Is this the ICD code (Diag. Code) from my physician's statements? Can I submit to VA a copy of the physician's billing statement that has the diag. code on it along with a table of the explanation of the ICD CODE?
  4. ICD (Diagnosis Code) & CPT (Procedure Code) Or 4.87 VA Codes I’m applying for Meniere’s syndrome (endolymphatic hydrops) Service connected disability. My question is on my insurance form 1/3/2002 the coding for this is 386.02 Active Meniere’s disease, cochleovestibular. On the VA 4.87 – Schedule of Ratings – Ear it shows code 6205 Meniere’s syndrome (endolymphatic hydrops: Hearing impairment with attacks of vertigo and cerebellar gait occurring more than once weekly, with or without tinnitus. When I take my DBQ to the ear nose and throat doctor to fill out for me does he enter the 386.02 or 6205 code? I’m going to submit my claim via eBenefits FDC Claims. I wanted to upload a copy of the insurance ICD and CPT codes with a medical explanation of the codes then. If I do this will the VA accept this information as evidence to my claim? If so, do I also upload the 6205 code for (Meniere’s syndrome) from the VA along with the information that goes with it? My claim goes way back starting on 11/23/62 and as you can see the diagnosis codes were different then. I sure could use some help!!
