After research, we determined code the code to be 92136 but the vendor is saying 66999. Do you agree with 92136? To further this effort, we have integrated the WaveTec® Vision, ORA System® technology within the Alcon portfolio of surgical cataract equipment. The ORA System provides key intra-operative measurements for refractive cataract surgery to improve precision of surgical implantation of intraocular lenses (IOLs). CATARACT REFRACTIVE DIAGNOSTICS The ORA™ System, Now Featuring VerifEye+™ Technology Now with real-time data validation in your ocular: • Provides lens power, sphere, cylinder and axis recommendation • Proven to significantly increase accuracy of lens power selection and decrease prediction error in prior myopic LASIK patients1 • Improves astigmatic outcomes by accounting for posterior corneal contribution2 The ORA™ System with VerifEye+™ Technology can enhance your AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL outcomes: • Helps determine cylindrical magnitude and axis in real time • Accounts for both anterior and posterior corneal astigmatism • Reduces incidence of unintended residual post-op astigmatism When compared to conventional (preoperative) calculation of cylinder power and axis, surgeons using the ORA™ System with VerifEye+™ Technology have reduced the number of patients who fall outside the intended astigmatic target by almost 54%.*,1

HELLO

If your physician has used a laser method for determining the axial length of the eye and other measurements for fitting and determination of the strength or power of an intraocular lens following cataract surgery, then appropriate CPT code would be 92136 {Ophthalmic biometry by partial coherence interferometry with intraocular lens power calculation}, otherwise you may report CPT code 66999 {Unlisted procedure, anterior segment of eye}

HOPE THIS HELPS!
