Hindsight is 20/20, especially when it comes to looking back at your 2017 eye care services coding. Are there things you wished you’d known back in January 2017 that would have made a difference in your claims accuracy and improved your overall reimbursement results? Lesson learned: Take action early and put 2018 ophthalmology coding and billing updates in your plan so you’re ready for increased reimbursements in 2018.
Join expert ophthalmology consultant Jeffrey Restuccio, CPC, COC, MBA, for insights on the 2018 CPT® code updates, including all the additions, revisions and deletions, Cat II and III changes, and correct use of CPT® codes in eye care. He will also cover the most common ICD-10 eye care coding mistakes. Jeff will use specific coding examples and step-by-step code analysis to help providers, coders, billers and managers address changes in ICD-10 to degenerative myopia, blindness, low vision and other codes, as well as new, deleted and revised codes for 2018.
This session will also cover Medicare updates with common diagnostic procedures, the basics like LCDs, E/M guidelines, office visits (with both E/M and 920xx codes) and incident-to rules, and how Medicare Advantage is different. You will learn how to appeal denied Medicare claims and get the low-down on carrier-specific rules as well. Finally, Jeff will address the concept of “disease specificity” in relation to the October 1, 2017, updated ICD-10 guidelines concerning carrier reimbursement relating to keratoconus, pterygiums, amblyopia, glaucoma and cataracts.
