corneal pachymetry 76514

  1. Default corneal pachymetry 76514
    New Call-to-action
    Hi I have a question if the providers are getting a better reading with an OCT instead of using the ultrasound for a pachymetry test, can they bill out a pachymetry test? I told them no but I wanted to know if that is correct.

    thanks

  2. Default
    The last I heard, OCT pachymetry still HAD NOT been approved as a replacement for the ultrasound version.
