I need some help and I may be over thinking this but...here goes.

If a patient is already scheduled for cataract surgery and and the surgeon performs this surgery and ends up having do a posterior vitrectomy which was not planned what are the billing guidelines for this. Can you still bill it eventhough it was not planned? All input would be welcome. TJ
