What is CPT Code 65093

CPT code 65093 refers to a surgical procedure involving the revision (correction or adjustment) of an eye that has previously had an implant. This code is used specifically when the surgery is performed to modify or fix issues related to the existing implant in the eye.

Does CPT 65093 Need a Modifier?

For the CPT code 65093, which pertains to the revision of an eye with an implant, several modifiers may be applicable depending on the specific circumstances of the surgery and billing considerations. Here is an ordered list of potential modifiers and the reasons for their use:

1. -22 (Increased Procedural Services): This modifier is used if the service provided is significantly greater than typically required. For example, if the revision surgery involves extra work due to scar tissue or complications from the initial implant.

2. -51 (Multiple Procedures): Use this modifier if the revision of the eye with an implant is performed at the same time as another, separate procedure. This helps in adjusting the reimbursement for multiple procedures that are performed during the same surgical session.

3. -52 (Reduced Services): If the procedure is partially reduced or eliminated at the physician's discretion, this modifier should be applied. This might be relevant if only a part of the initial planned procedure is performed.

4. -53 (Discontinued Procedure): Applied when a procedure is terminated after the beginning due to extenuating circumstances or those threatening the well-being of the patient during surgery.

5. -54 (Surgical Care Only): This modifier is used when one physician performs the surgical care and another provides preoperative and/or postoperative management.

6. -55 (Postoperative Management Only): Used when one physician performs the postoperative management and another physician performed the surgical procedure.

7. -56 (Preoperative Management Only): Indicates that a physician provided only the preoperative care and did not perform the surgery.

8. -58 (Staged or Related Procedure or Service by the Same Physician During the Postoperative Period): This is used for procedures that are planned prospectively or more extensive than the original procedure.

9. -78 (Unplanned Return to the Operating/Procedure Room by the Same Physician Following Initial Procedure for a Related Procedure During the Postoperative Period): This modifier is used if a return to the operating room is required to address a complication from the initial procedure.

10. -79 (Unrelated Procedure or Service by the Same Physician During the Postoperative Period): Use this modifier if a new procedure (unrelated to the original) is performed while the patient is still in the postoperative period for the initial surgery.

11. -80 (Assistant Surgeon): Used when an assistant surgeon is present during the procedure.

12. -AS (Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, or Clinical Nurse Specialist Services for Assistant at Surgery): This modifier is specific to non-physician practitioners assisting in surgery.

Each of these modifiers addresses a specific scenario that might affect how the procedure is billed and reimbursed, ensuring accurate and fair compensation for the services provided.
