ED Coding Removal of Foreign body eye

Paula k Posted Tue 21st of February, 2012 11:35:06 AM

The ED physician removed foreign body of the eye with a Q tip using a slip lamp. Can I use 65222? Or does the foreign body need to be embedded to use 65222?

Yes. You could use 65222.
You could see here one RQ for reference:
