You are correct with the code 0192T external approach, for treatment of refractory primary open-angle glaucoma,where a scleral flap is implanted in between the anterior chamber to facilitate the drainage of aqueous humor. Mitomycin C is an antibiotics and it is applied to avoid infections, which is inclusive with this procedure.

Thanks Alex ...so is the 0192T the only billiable code here ?
I was asked to bill the Mitomycin - I suppose I need to find and LCD to show it is inclusive ?
Any other suggestions ?
