Thank you for the query.
To bill Medicare for the code 67900, you must have documentation of medical necessity: specifically, a visual defect documented by visual fields (92081-92083), and pathology documented by external ocular photographs with side views (92285, External ocular photography with interpretation and report for documentation of medical progress [e.g., close-up photography, slit lamp photography, goniophotography, stereo-photography]).
15823 can be billed along with the side modifier.
Hope it helps you.
