Medicare policy for cataract surgery with visual acuity 20/40

  1. Default Medicare policy for cataract surgery with visual acuity 20/40
    Medical Coding Books
    Has anybody had trouble with payment on cataract surgeries or have a current policy that explains the current requirements needed for submitting claims with visual acuity is 20/40, 20/50 for surgeries? All the denials relate to additional documentation but I would like to more information if possible in lieu of DL30889 which will be published later in year. Thank you.
