    Default Incision & Drainage Orbital/Eyelid Abcess

    I am trying to find a CPT code for Incision & Drainage Orbital/Eyelid with diagnosis of 376.1 orbital abcess. Any suggestions? I am looking at 67405 or 67413.
    Thanks

    2017 ICD-10-CM Coding Book
    Eyelid I&D is 67700 and Orbital is 67405

    I would be inclined to use 67405 because of the dx you provided.

    Just my take.
