Hi Rana,


Thanks for your question.


There is CCI edit between codes 66982 and 65875 where 65875 is a column 2 code, which means it may be reported with modifier 59 when performed on separate eye. But if both procedures are performed on the same eye, then code 65875 cannot be reported with 66982.


Moreover, please let us know the reason given by the payer due to which the payer is recouping the payment.


Please feel free to write if you have any question.
