1 2014 CODING UPDATE 1

2 Increases RVU (Medcr) EM office visits (99xxx) +3% Ophthalmic office visits (92xxx) +6% Ext. Ophthal. (92225/6) +5% ($28/$25) Topography (92025) +6% ($38) Foreign Body, Conj. (65205) +6% ($58) Cornea puncture, tattoo (65600) +6% ($411) Probe canaliculi (68840) +7% ($135) 2

3 Decreases RVU (Medcr) Fundus Photo (92250) -6% ($81) Cornea FB w/SL (65222) -7% ($70) Fit CL for ocl. surface dx (92071) -10% ($34) Cat. Sx. w/ IOL (66984-55) -12% ($134) Photo, External (92285) -14% ($21) Visual Field, Extnd. (92083) -26% ($67) Photo, Specular Micrscpy (92286) -69% ($39) 3

4 Amniotic Membrane 65778 Placement of of amniotic membrane on the ocular surface for wound healing; self- retaining Recurrent corneal erosion, infectious/inflammatory keratitis, herpes, superficial epithelial defects, severe dry eye, cornea disease. 4

5 Amniotic Membrane For healing persistent epithelial defects, ulcers. When bandage CL needed, want inflammation control, but cant use steroid. $1469 (Medcr) Cost $800 Paid by Medicare in several states. 5

7 Scanning Laser for Plaquenil V58.69 Long term (current) use of other medications; Other high-risk medications Nine Medicare Part B contractors: 6 approve V58.69 (Novitas, CGS, First Coast, NGS, NHIC, WPS). Three (Cahaba, Noridan, Palmetto) are silent about V58.69 -- they have no LCD for OCT. 6 approve V58.69 (Novitas, CGS, First Coast, NGS, NHIC, WPS). Three (Cahaba, Noridan, Palmetto) are silent about V58.69 -- they have no LCD for OCT. 7

8 Scanning Laser for Plaquenil States with Cahaba, Noridan, Palmetto: if 92134 with V58.69 is denied (as in the past), submit an appeal, giving evidence that Novitas, CGS, First Coast, NGS, NHIC, WPS pay for V58.69. Chances are good the contractor will reverse its decision and it will be paid. 8

9 Medicare MEDICARE PAYMENT REDUCTION PROGRAMS: OPPS, MPPR, SEQUESTRATION 9

10 Medicare OPPS - Medicare put payment cap on some diagnostic imaging services, based on fee caps of Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS). The only optometric code affected is 92250 Fundus Photography. 10

11 Medicare MPPR - Medicare reduces payment on some diagnostic ophthalmology procedures, when two (or more) are billed on the same day. The MPPR (Multiple Procedure Payment Reduction) reduces payment on the 2nd code (and the 3rd, 4th, etc). 11

12 Medicare MPPR – The first diagnostic procedure is paid at the normal rate. The first diagnostic procedure is defined as the one with highest value. 12

13 Medicare MPPR – 76514Pachymetry 92025Corneal topography 92060Sensorimotor exam 92083Visual field, extended 92132Scanning imaging, anterior segment 92133Scanning imaging, optic nerve 92134Scanning imaging, retina 13

15 Medicare SEQUESTRATION - Federal budget problems resulted in an overall 2% reduction of physician pay. Medicare pays the physician 78% of the allowed payment, and the patient still owes 20% of the Allowed Payment. Allowed Payment remains the same. file://localhost/Users/alanhomestead/Documents/My Documents B 3-8-13/Adventures 11-3-12/1 AccuFee/2013/AccuFee 2013 Files XLSX/1 AccuFee 2013 15.4.xlsx file://localhost/Users/alanhomestead/Documents/My Documents B 3-8-13/Adventures 11-3-12/1 AccuFee/2013/AccuFee 2013 Files XLSX/1 AccuFee 2013 15.4.xlsx 15

16 GLAUCOMA STAGE ICD CODES 16

17 Using Glaucoma Stage Code Select ICD code for type of glaucoma (same as past) from 38 glaucoma codes (365.xx) 17

18 If selected code is one of 11 (below), add Glaucoma Stage code in 2nd position on claim form 365.10 Open-angle glaucoma, unspecified 365.11 Primary open angle glaucoma 365.12 Low tension glaucoma 365.13 Pigmentary glaucoma 365.20 Primary angle-closure glaucoma, unspecified 18

19 365.23 Chronic angle-closure glaucoma 365.31 Corticosteroid-induced glaucoma, glaucomatous stage 365.52 Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma 365.62 Glaucoma associated with ocular inflammations 365.63 Glaucoma associated with vascular disorders 365.65 Glaucoma associated with ocular trauma 19

20 Select Glaucoma Stage code (physicians judgment) 365.70 Glaucoma stage, unspecified No documentation regarding stage of glaucoma No documentation regarding stage of glaucoma 365.71 Mild stage glaucoma Optic nerve changes consistent with glaucoma Optic nerve changes consistent with glaucoma No VF loss on white-on-white perimetry No VF loss on white-on-white perimetry VF loss may be on short-wavelength automated perimetry or frequency-doubling perimetry VF loss may be on short-wavelength automated perimetry or frequency-doubling perimetry 20

21 365.72 Moderate stage glaucoma Optic nerve changes consistent with glaucoma Optic nerve changes consistent with glaucoma VF loss in one hemifield VF loss in one hemifield Not within 5° of fixation Not within 5° of fixation 365.73 Severe stage glaucoma Optic nerve change consistent with glaucoma Optic nerve change consistent with glaucoma VF loss in both hemifields VF loss in both hemifields VF loss within 5° of fixation in at least one hemifield VF loss within 5° of fixation in at least one hemifield 21

22 365.74 Indeterminate stage glaucoma Glaucoma stage cannot be determined Glaucoma stage cannot be determined Had no time to do VF Had no time to do VF Patient can’t do VF Patient can’t do VF VF unreliable or uninterpretable, so stage of glaucoma is unsure VF unreliable or uninterpretable, so stage of glaucoma is unsure Do not confuse 365.74 with 365.70 which is no documentation regarding stage of glaucoma Do not confuse 365.74 with 365.70 which is no documentation regarding stage of glaucoma 22

23 Bilateral Glaucoma Same type and stage Report one code for type of glaucoma, and one Glaucoma stage code Report one code for type of glaucoma, and one Glaucoma stage code Same type but different stage Report one code for type of glaucoma, and one Glaucoma stage code for the highest glaucoma stage Report one code for type of glaucoma, and one Glaucoma stage code for the highest glaucoma stage Each eye different type and different stage Report two codes, one for each type glaucoma, and one Glaucoma stage code for highest glaucoma stage Report two codes, one for each type glaucoma, and one Glaucoma stage code for highest glaucoma stage 23

24 Claim Form Enter stage code adjacent to glaucoma diagnosis Report with office visit code and every related procedure done during visit 24

25 Secondary Codes Glaucoma stage codes are secondary add-on codes Glaucoma stage codes are not principal or first- listed or primary diagnosis codes 25

26 HIPAA Adherence to ICD guidelines is required by HIPAA HIPAA applies to anything transmitted electronically Some plans may be slow to recognize new codes 26

27 PAYMENT IF NOT REPORTED? Florida MAC says Yes Noridian?WPS?Non-Medicare? 27
