I have a tricky one where they are trying to see if I can code!
Proc is Penetrating Keratoplasty, left eye, aphakia. They have
I think it is wrong, states except in aphakia or pseudophakia. I coded
65750, states penetrating in aphakia. Am I right?
Also they coded Subconjunctival Injection x3
68200. It mentions in the report Subcvonjunctival injection of Ancef,tobramycin, and Decadron were given? Would you use this code x3?
I need this if you can latest by early am! I have to turn this test in early in the morning.
Thanks a Million!

Subconjunctival Injection stands for one substance that is then injected slowly which will cause a ballooning effect between the conjunctiva and sclera.
Here 3 substances are injected resulting to code 68200 x3 times.
You are correct in coding 65750 Keratoplasty (corneal transplant); penetrating (in aphakia)
