What is the correct way to bill J0178 (eylea) and 67028 for both eyes done on same day?

Thank you for your question.
The recommended dosage of aflibercept (eylea) is 2mg (0.05 mL) administered by intravitreal injection.
Since, the Intravitreal injection procedure was performed bilaterally, append modifier 50 (Bilateral Procedure) to CPT® code 67028.
Report the scenario as below:
67028-50 (to indicate that the procedure was performed bilaterally)
J0178 x 4 (2mg dosage per affected eye).
For more information, please find the undermentioned link by The U.S. Food and Drug Administration
Hope that helps.
