Bleb revision

  1. Default Bleb revision
    Exam Training Packages
    I have a doc that did a bleb revision for failed trabeculectomy, pt has uncontrolled glaucoma, op report states : a 30gauge needle was advanced and passed and swept beneath the previously created trabeculectomy flap to loosen the adhesions. A good bleb formation was noted.
    I am guesing that Cpt code would be 66250, the physician office is telling me 66185. Please help.

  2. Default
    66185 is the code I use for revision of a bleb, check to see if your documentation supports the code, its' the revision of an aqueous shunt.
    Hope this helps,
