cataract question

  1. Default cataract question
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello all,

    Our doc states "complex" cataract due to dense nuclear sclerotic cataract requiring and Ultrachopper needle, making this a complex case.

    Would this be enough to bill 66982?


  2. Default any takers??
    "Ultrachopper needle was then used to divide the nucleus in quadrants"
