• 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
    H18.13 bilateral

    The secondary code can be Z96.1 Pseudophakia.
