    Can 66761 (Iridedtomy, laser) be billed bilaterally? This is a commercial insurance.

    This is what I found on supercoder.com

    With all laser procedures described as including one or more sessions or stages, you should use the eye modifiers even if you do not anticipate performing the procedure on the other eye. You can only bill one laser procedure of the same code in a 90-day period on the same eye because these codes are defined as for one or more treatments. Laser codes are always unilateral.
