Stuck on this one :
Patient had an extracapsular cataract extraction assisted with phacoemulsification, anterior vitrectomy, sutured sulcus iol, iridoplasty and pupiloplasty , the booking states 66983 and 67005. 67005 i agree not sure about 66983 and i know there has to be more codes

a lot of what you mention bundles into the 66982. If the vitrectomy was documented prior to the procedure, then you can code that with the 59 modifier but it has be documented and not just something that he decided to do while he was there (making it incidental).

Hope this helps :)
