• Billing for Yag PI Prior to Corneal Transplant

    Question: In the past, our surgeon would perform CPT code 66761 Yag PI at the same time as his corneal transplants but did not bill separately for them. He is now performing the Yag PI a few days prior to the corneal transplant. Is this separately billable?

    Answer: It would not be separately billable as there is no other indication other than it is part of the procedure.
