Cataract Surgery and Glaucoma Stents – Ophthalmology Management

Cataract surgery is frequently performed in conjunction with glaucoma stent procedures. In 2022, we have new CPT codes to describe these combination procedures.

This article addresses the following questions:

  • What glaucoma stent procedures are performed with cataract surgery?
  • What are the new CPT codes?
  • Is there reimbursement for the stent procedures without cataract surgery?
  • What does Medicare allow for these procedures?
  • Does Part B Medicare offer separate reimbursement for the glaucoma device?
  • May gonioscopy (CPT 92020) be billed with the claim for surgery?
  • Are CPT codes 66991 and 66989 eligible for co-management?
  • What about bundles?
