    Default Amniotic membrane

    AAPC: Back to School
    If the doctor did an excision of pterygium of eye and used an amniotic membrane graft, is the graft included in cpt code 65426 , or is 65780 at better choice ?

    Per CPT description 65426 includes the graft and would be the correct code.
