I am very new to ophthalmology and have just been hired to do some chart auditing for an eye center. I have a lot to learn about the different tests, etc., but the one thing I'm having trouble with is how to differentiate between when to use an Intermediate eye code versus the Comprehensive eye code. The doctor I'm auditing now consistently uses comprehensive and I'm just not certain he should be. I have, of course, read CPT guidelines, etc., but still can not find what I need. Can anyone tell me the 'triggers' that change an intermediate to comprehensive??
I would greatly appreciate any ideas you have!!
