I think with a chief complaint that refers to it as a foreign body (itching, red eye, swollen or FB feeling) and a properly documented procedure note if this was a first vist you could bill for both the E/M and removal. If the doctor previously eval'd it and patient is returning, then bill for the removal only. The procedure note must state the procedure, indication for it, some description of what was done, outcome, follow-up.
