What is the correct way to bill for a lateral tarsal strip AND Quickert Sutures for entropion of the right lower eyelid (HO2.002)?
SuperCoder Posted 1 Year(s) ago

Hi,

Code 67924, Repair of entropion; extensive (eg, tarsal strip or capsulopalpebral fascia repairs operation) can be reported if the documentation supports the procedure.

Hope that helps!

Just to make sure: is there any instance these 2 procedures would be billed separately? Does the 67924 encompass both the Quickert suture AND the entropion repair? The documentation mentions both: "patient agrees to proceed with lateral tarsal strip AND Quickert everting sutures OD."

Hi,

The code for quikert suture 67921 is bundled with 67924. So, if physican is doing lateral tarsal strip with suture in the same eye report only 67924. 

Thanks
