• Multiple iStents

    Question: I need some assistance on the billing Category III code 0191T iStent. Our physician inserted two in the same session along with cataract surgery. Can I bill for more than one iStent?

    Answer: Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, Category III add-on code +0376T Insertion of anterior aqueous drainage device, without extraocular reservoir; internal approach, into the trabecular meshwork; each additional device insertion, is now available to report additional insertions.

    It should only be submitted in conjunction with Category III code 0191T. However, it is not separately billable by the ASC or to the patient.
