• Corneal Culture in Facility


    Question: Our surgeon performed CPT code 65430 Scraping of cornea, diagnostic, for smear and/or culture in the ASC. I do not have a facility fee amount for this service. Are we allowed to bill for this in a facility?

    Answer: For 2019, this code lists 2.94 RVUs for facility setting. The national average would be around $106 reimbursement.
