68761 upper and lower both eyes

Daniel y Posted Fri 31st of October, 2014 10:03:26 AM

68761 was performed to both eyes on upper and lower lids. Medicare only allow modifer 50 for bilateral. This case how can I bill. I was going to bill modifier 50 with unit 2 but I can't explain why it is unit 2 to the claim.

You should be using the modifiers for the eyelids and bill 68761-E1,68761-E2,68761-E3,68761-E4.
