    Skilled Nursing Facility E&M Codes

    It was brought to my attention that medical evaluation and management CPT Codes (9920* - 9921*) reported by our Optometrists and Ophthalmologists could be rejected by CMS when billed in a SNF-Skilled Nursing Facility-setting (POS 31, 32, etc.).

    Medically Necessary Contact Fit and Materials

    Trying to figure out the best way to bill and receive reimbursement for scleral contact lenses. My doctor wants to use 92313 with H18.59 diagnosis, but Medicare allowable reimbursment is only $90.71. With contact lenses the total charge will be $2500.

This is how it works with VSP but I am having trouble with my commercial...

    Payment on 0330T (LipiView) - Optometry

    Has anyone ever seen a payment on 0330T (Lipiview)? I have never seen an insurance that pays for these services. As a matter of fact, the company that sells the LipiView/LipiFlow machines market them as selfpay services. By accident I billed a LipiView procedure to a patient's insurance last...
