Is there a code for ND YAg Laser?

SuperCoder Answered Wed 21st of September, 2011 20:06:35 PM

If you have the report, can you confirm that whether it is a report on Laser cataract surgery. If yes, then it would be:
66821 - Discission of secondary membranous cataract (opacified posterior lens capsule and/or anterior hyaloid); laser surgery (eg, YAG laser) (1 or more stages)
If the procedure is something else, plz let me know.

This procedure is removing foreign object from the cheek using ND-Yag laser.

If the procedure is for tattoo removal through Yag laser then no specific code is available, then you can use the 96999 for this (Unlisted procedure).

Insurance compmay will not usually pay for this cosmetic surgery.
