    Default 70030 x 2- please clarify

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am a new coder so i just need clarification. My billing program ALife indicates because we xrayed both orbits for foreign bodies we need to code 70030 x 2. I'm not sure by your description whether I should add the 2nd code to our radiology report or not, one for each eye. I believe we should one LT and one RT.

    We typically only charge once because the film includes both eyes. Our office routinely does these prior to MRIs.
