bulbar conjunctival injections

    Default bulbar conjunctival injections

    I need to code a bulbar conjunctival injection and do not seem to find an appropriate code. Is the subconjunctival injection appropriate for this bulbar area also?

    The codes we have to choose from are:

    66030- Injection, medication, anterior chamber
    67028- Injection, medication, intravitreal
    67500- Injection, medication, retrobulbar
    67515- Injection, medication, Tenon's capsule
    68200- Injection, medication, subconjunctival

    I would ask your doctor to clarify which area he injected out of the above choices.
