I NEED CPT CODES FOR: EXCISION OF PIGMENTED LEFT LOWER EYELID LESION,
AND PLASTIC RECONSTRUCTION OF LEFT LOWER LID CANALICULI, AND DILATION PROBING, AND STENTING OF THE NASOLACRIMAL SYSTEM ON LEFT SIDE WITH A CRAWFORD.

THANK YOU,

Hi,

The procedure might involve lid margin, tarsus, and/or palpebral conjunctiva. The physician should indicate these terms in the chart notes when documenting the removal of the lesion. If these words are documented than use cpt code 67840.

When your ophthalmologist performs an eyelid lesion excision that involves mainly the eyelid skin, you should turn to the integumentary lesion excision codes. Look at two details to choose the correct code in this section.For benign lesions, look at 11440-11446.

You can report 68700 for plastic repair of canaliculi and 68815 for Probing of nasolacrimal duct, with or without irrigation; with insertion of tube or stent .

Thanks
