Amy Posted Tue 20th of November, 2012 19:53:34 PM

Can you check this CPT and Dx code for me?
Cataract extraction with intraocular lens placement, left eye (Model SA60AT, power 19.0). 66830-LT? Does the power matter?
DX- 366.04? Nuclear, Sclerotic cataract , left eye.

66830 is for secondary cataract removal. Power doesn't make any difference in coding.
