Thread: only one eye dilated fundus exam

    Default only one eye dilated fundus exam

    AAPC: Back to School
    If only one eye is dilated for the fundus exam and other requirements for comprehensive eye code are met can you bill 92004 or 92014 or do you bill the intermediate level?

    Yes you can bill. Codes are for one or both eyes. Maybe you can just document why the other eye was not dilated.
