    Default multiple chalazia incision and drainage

    AAPC: Back to School
    What is the appropriate way to code multiple chalazia bilateral both upper and lower eyelid

  2. #2


    CPT 67805 which includes all the lids.
    Excision and the I& D merits sharing the same code as to the chalazion concerned
    Support it with the ICD-9 373.2.
    the blephrotomy code does not match.
    Does any one have different view?
