    Default Avastin injection
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient had an ahmed valve implantation -cpt code 66180 - with scleral path graf for reinforcement, cpt code 67255, with avastin injection into the vitreous cavity- not sure on this code - this is also done at An ASC
    Can I ALSO code for the injection ?
    Someone told me to use C9257-.25 MG
    Patient had 1.25 mg
    so if this is true do i bill c9257 x5
    and what about the injection code ???

    You would bill x5 for the Avastin.
    The injection code (67028), you could try with a 59 modifier IF it was done through a different sclerotomy site.
