H81.8X1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other disorders of vestibular function, right ear. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code H81 is used to code Balance disorder
A balance disorder is a disturbance that causes an individual to feel unsteady, for example when standing or walking. It may be accompanied by feelings of giddiness, or wooziness, or having a sensation of movement, spinning, or floating. Balance is the result of several body systems working together: the visual system (eyes), vestibular system (ears) and proprioception (the body's sense of where it is in space). Degeneration or loss of function in any of these systems can lead to balance deficits.
