I have billed for an Ophthalmologist for many years and have never been paid for an L.R.I. by an insurance company for astigmatism that was caused by a cataract operation. It has been my experience that the only time an insurance company will consider this procedure for payment is when the patient has had a corneal transplant performed and astigmatism is a direct cause of the operation. We charge the patient out of pocket for this procedure and it is coded as 66999 not 65772. I hope this helps.
