Blepharitis exam reporting: How many lids?
Question: Blepharitis is reported by lid, not by eye, so must I report all four lids for payment on my exam?
Answer: No. Report at least one lid for payment. You can only report four diagnoses per CPT code. When a patient has glaucoma and blepharitis, reporting all four lids doesn't provide enough room to report the higher-risk glaucoma diagnosis.
