How do I code an istent with removal of cataract?

A category III CPT code, 0191T, established on July 1, 2008, applies. It reads: “insertion of anterior segment aqueous drainage device, without extraocular reservoir; internal approach, into the trabecular meshwork.” Also, the appropriate cataract removal procedure code would appear on the claim.
