We code for an emergency room and our provider wants to know why he cannot bill for the slit lamp when he does not remove a foreign body. He still did the same procedure. Can the slit lamp-cpt code 65222 with modifier 52 for reduced services as no foreign body was found and removed??? Seeking clarification.

response to CODING FOR SLIT LAMP W/O A FB REMOVAL

I wouldn't imagine you could use 65222-52 seeing the code is for FB removal....
not slit lamp w/FB removal
