Injection Same Day as Cataract Surgery
Question: Can CPT code 67028 Intravitreal injection for diabetic retinopathy be billed for the same eye during cataract surgery?
Answer: CPT code 67028 is bundled in with cataract surgery when performed the same day. Being separate structures, it may be appropriate to unbundle with modifier -59. Some commercial payers may still deny due to the phrase “separate procedure” in the language descriptor of 67028.
