Dr. did a cataract excision without IOL exchange, he is going to do the IOL exchange on the next day. Do we bill the 66984 52modifier for first day or should we just bill the code 66984 on the second day

Is there a reason whey the physician did not do the IOL exchange on the first day? What was actually done on the first day and why was the procedure not completed. The answer will determine how the service should be coded and billed.
