    can we bill an E/M with eye injections? I was told we can only bill eye codes with eye injections, but I'm not finding any supporting documentation that states you cannot bill an E/M with them, either. we are provider-based clinic.

    Yes, you can bill both Evaluation & Management codes (99XXX) and Eye Codes (92XXX), when your -25 modifier supports and indicates that significant separately identifiable E/M services were performed other than the condition for which injection was performed. Also Ophthalmologists have freedom to choose from two type of office visit codes: Evaluation & Management codes (99XXX) and Eye Codes (92XXX).
