ICD-10 Coding & Documentation Quick-Reference Guide for Optometry/Ophthalmology Services

As eyecare professionals have found out since ICD-10 was announced, diagnosis coding under the new system can be far more complex than under ICD-9. The ICD-10-CM system consists of over 69,000 codes, compared to 14,000 (approximately) ICD-9-CM codes and brings specificity such as bilateral eye diagnosis codes. Without a reliable resource, your practice may lag behind in its ICD-10 preparation and witness payment hold-ups and reimbursement loss.

Optometry/Ophthalmology ICD-10 Coding & Documentation Challenges

Optometry/ophthalmology practices will see an increase in the number of ICD-10 codes; but much of the increase is because of bilateral eye diagnosis codes — right, left, bilateral or unspecified. For instance, in ICD-9, you reported procedures with modifiers RT (right) and LT (left); however in ICD-10, you will report most eye care diagnoses by eye or eyelid. Secondly, specificity is another issue that you will have to deal with.

ICD-9 Vs ICD-10 coding

You need to improve your ICD-9 coding to better understand your ICD-10 coding. Your practice won’t receive its deserved reimbursement if you don’t have a complete understanding of the ICD-10 coding changes.
