CPT Coding for ECP

Code 66711 was established in 2005 by Endo Optiks, Inc. for Endosocopic CycloPhotocoagulation. Effective January 1, 2020, 66711 should only be reported when ECP is performed alone.  Two new codes have been introduced and should be reported when performing ECP at the time of cataract surgery. The new codes are 66987 (complex cataract removal and ECP) and 66988 (routine cataract removal and ECP).
