Thread: Bilateral or correct as billed?

    Default Bilateral or correct as billed?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Provider has billed 67820-E2 and 67820-E4. An auditor is questioning if bilateral pricing should apply. Would a procedure performed on the right lower eyelid and the left lower eyelid be considered anatomically bilateral?

    the E2 and E4 are correct modifiers for eyelids.
