• Are there known billing issues with diagnosis codes H50.2 and H52.0?

    Question:  My pediatric ophthalmologist heard claims will be denied because two diagnosis codes are considered mutually exclusive. Regarding H50.02 and H52.0, have you heard of any billing issues with these two diagnosis codes?

    Answer: ICD-10 code H50.02 Monocular esotropia with A pattern and H52.0 Hypermetropia do not have an Excludes1 edit. This means you can report both on the same patient, same eye.
