  • No, it actually doesn’t have anything to do with your nose. Nosology is commonly defined as simply “the branch of medical science that deals with classification of diseases.”

    3M’s Nosology Support team is made up of credentialed, experienced coders who can help you with both inpatient or outpatient coding questions and problems. So if a difficult question comes up, we can help resolve it quickly and get you back to doing what you do best. Who else does that for you but 3M?

    How to contact 3M Nosology Support

    You can reach the nosology team Monday through Friday by calling toll-free 800-435-7776. You can also visit the 3M client-only website any time at
