Ophthalmology coders and billers will have to deal with a number of changes this year. Due to a code freeze for several years and the continued need for new or revised codes, there will be thousands of code changes for FY 2017.
In this session expert speaker Jeffrey Restuccio, CPC, COC, MBA will begin by discussing rules on receiving payments from patients directly and tips on how to work with Medicare as-well-as private insurance companies. Another area of discussion will be documentation and modifier use issues and other issues resulting in refusals.
