• ICD-10 Code for Brow Ptosis


    Question: Our surgeon will be performing a brow ptosis procedure; however there is no applicable ICD-10 code. What is the appropriate diagnosis to submit?

    Answer: As of October 2018, you can now submit for brow ptosis: 

    • H57.811, right
    • H57.812, left
    • H57.813, bilateral

    Of course, you will need to verify with your payers because not all implement the new codes when they become effective.
