    Default Optical Comprehensive Exams

    AAPC: Back to School
    According to Palmetto,the general ophthalmological services vs E/M reads a comprehensive exam (92004 or 92014) should always include fundus exam (92250 OPTOS) with pupils dilated. Our physicians are currently giving the patient the option of either. Is this the correct interpretation? Thanks for sharing.

    I'm interested in the correct interpretation as well. I always thought it was the doctors decision.
