We have only been billing 78660 for a dacrocystogram. We recently received an edit that says a surgical intervention code might be needed. We use eye drops to administer the radiopharmaceutical. Do we need a surgical code, and would it be 68850?
According to the CPT book, 68850 may be reported with code 78660; however, we would not report it when eye drops are used to administer the radiopharmaceutical since the code is for an injection.
