Physician used punctum dilator to dilate the upper puncta of right eye. Then inserted a collagen plug. This is my short version of the op report but basically what was done.:) My question is can I bill both 68801 for the dilation and 68761 for the insert of the plug?? I do not see in the cpt book where one is included in the other so I would think that I could do this. The physician always circles both procedures but other coders in the office say we can only bill 68761. What do you think?
