92136 vs 76519
When we perform optical biometry, we occasionally do not get the axial length (AL) due to the cataract but can get the remaining measurements. We perform ultrasound/immersion only for the AL. Is it more appropriate to charge 92136 or 76519?
If the axial length is critical for the IOL measurements and lens selection, then bill out 76519.
