A question about the visual acuity screen as a component of a "welcome to Medicare" IPPE G0402.

A visual acuity screen is required. If a provider charted something to the effect of, "the visual acuity examination was deferred as the patient is scheduled for a complete ophthalmologic exam with their established ophthalmologic provider in 1 week."

Will this pass muster for a Medicare IPPE?

Thank you.

Based on the attached, I would say no, it will not count.
