ICD-10 code for Pseudophakic Bullous Keratopathy
Question: I do not see a diagnosis code for pseudophakic bullous keratopathy. Should I bill H59.01X Keratopathy (bullous aphakic) following cataract surgery and Z96.1 Pseudophakia?
Answer: Since the patient has the IOL, you will instead submit:
H18.1- Bullous keratopathy
H18.11 right eye
H18.12 left eye
The secondary code can be Z96.1 Pseudophakia.
