Patient is seen for RT eye corneal injury, the Doctor performs corneal debridement and then does the bandage contact lense service, Can we bill 65435 (debridement) & 92071 (bandage contact lense) together?
If so, what would be the appropriate modifiers?

Use Modifier 59 with 92071.
Code 92071 is a column 2 code for 65435 , but a modifier is allowed in order to differentiate between the services provided.
