Medicalbillersandcoders.com the Answer to Varied Optometry Medical Billing Concerns Faced by Optometrists across US!
Date:10/29/2013

WILMINGTON, Delaware, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Increasing number of optometry providers across US are finding an answer to their medical billing concerns by partnering with Medicalbillersandcoders.com. Numerous years of experience in optometry medical billing has provided MBC billers specialized knowledge and insight of the specialty.

Avoiding optometry medical billing errors… Medicalbillersandcoders.com experts believe that an optometry practice can increase their collections by averting billing errors and by keeping in mind the following-

  • Ensure that the diagnosis code matches the procedure codes -for instance a code for myopia doesn't match a visual filed procedure code. In the same manner a pterygium code cannot be used for a scanning laser test, but is payable for an anterior segment photograph
  • Be as specific and consistent as possible - this is possible by acquiring a complete understanding of codes and modifiers. For instance most specific ICD-9 have four or five digits, and coding a diagnosis with five digits when it requires four, leads to claim denial. Coders need to get information from reliable sources and also cross reference alternative sources such as American Optometric Association codebook and Codelink Ophthalmology. Moreover coders also now need to get updated on the soon to be implemented ICD-10 codes
  • Observe the billing pattern - Determine what other practices are charging and find out where your practice's billing pattern stands. This is because payers flag under-billing as well as over-billing and practices need to assess if their fees are very high, low or in line with other practices. But this may be a difficult task as once optometrists have started their practice most are careful about sharing their financial information with other optometrists
  • Be attentive of any procedures performed very frequently - This is because procedures performed more often than similar providers in the area are subject to scrutiny and payers refer to this behavior as higher utilization pattern. Optometrists need to be aware of certain procedures which have one fee that covers all care within a certain time frame such as epilation, punctal plug insertion and cataract surgeries, which have global periods attached to them. Billing repeat visits during these timeframes may result in rejections
  • Extended ophthalmoscopy- is for serious retinal disorders such as retinal detachment, requiring detailed color drawings with interpretation. This is because reimbursement for extended ophthalmoscopy has declined sharply as it is the most abused and audited procedure code and various providers prefer to take a photograph for documentation
