The "separate procedure" clause means that that code is included (bundled) with another code. You'd have to check your CCI to see if 92020 is actually on the list and bundled with the 92012. Check in both directions with each code against each column I and column II. Then also check against the mutually exclusive list.
I don't know what the allowed amounts are for either code but I think they should be paying for the exam and bundling the gonio, not vice versa.
