Ophthalmologists will see the biggest pay cuts in 2020!

RVU amounts factor heavily into reimbursement, and changes in RVU assignments hit ophthalmology and optometry practices the hardest in 2020, with a combined impact of -10% and -5% respectively.

With your reimbursement under pressure, you can’t afford claim errors. But ophthalmology practices also ranked among top specialties with the most Part B upcoding errors, logging $4.7 million in improper payments. What’s more, optometrists logged more DME coding errors than any other specialty!

Don’t risk your hard-earned pay. Hurdle the toughest ophthalmology and optometry coding and reimbursement obstacles with expert monthly guidance.

TCI’s Ophthalmology & Optometry Coding Alert makes it easy to stay informed, compliant, and profitable. Take advantage of vital monthly guidance to hone your reporting accuracy and boost your coding know-how. Keep pace with ICD-10, CPT®, and HCPCS code and guideline changes, regulatory updates, CCI edits, and revisions to modifiers, payer policies, the fee schedule, OIG target areas, and more.

Every issue of your risk-free subscription to Ophthalmology & Optometry Coding Alert lays out a wealth of information, tackling the challenges you face and delivering money-in-the-bank answers to questions like:

  • Our ophthalmologist checked a patient’s pressures for glaucoma over the course of several hours and documented “diurnal curve testing”. How do we report this?
  • According to our office manager, separate diagnoses are not required to use modifier 25. However, it looks like we never get paid unless we use separate diagnoses for the procedure and the E/M code. Is our office manager right, or are we doing something wrong?
  • Our ophthalmologist checked an inpatient who was involved in a car accident. The patient expressed that she was fine except for some pain in her left eye where her face hit the steering wheel. The X-ray showed a fracture of the orbital roof on the left eye. Which diagnosis code should we use here?

Our coding experts, led by editor Torrey Kim, CPC® and consulting editor Gina Vanderwall, OCS, CPC, CPPM, will equip you to overcome the toughest eye care coding and reimbursement challenges. In fact, we’re so confident your subscription will pay for itself many times over that we stand behind it with our 100% Money-Back Satisfaction Guarantee.
