Top 3 Challenges with Optometry Billing Services
Nowadays, the financial health of your eye care
practice depends more on the continuous cash
flows than ever. In fact, keeping up with
proactive optometric billing solutions in this
ever-changing industry is putting strains on the
optometrists and their staff worldwide. All this
have resulted in either the closure of many
eyecare practices or alteration of office hours
as per the guidelines from AAO,CDC, and
AOA. Thats why there is a need to focus more on
the performance of claim audits before it is too
late to receive the complete amount of
reimbursements. One such move of the claim audits
is to understand the challenges faced by the
optometry practices in billing and coding their
tasks. Lets have a deep understanding of the top
3 challenges faced by the optometrists in billing
and coding their services

  •  Some of the frequently used modifiers for
    optometry practices include
  • RT/LT for the right and left eye or lid along
    with the E1-E4 modifiers used for differentiating
    the right and left inferior and superior lids.
  • -24 modifier is applicable when a doctor
    undertakes an office visit during the period of
    an unrelated procedure. For instance, a visit
    performed by a doctor when a patient who had an
    eye cataract surgery in the last 90 days and
    comes up with an unrelated ocular issue in the
    other eye.
  • To get the reimbursement for the office visit,
    you have to add a -24 modifier while submitting
    the claim to the payer.
  • -25 modifiers are used for performing two
    unrelated and separate eye procedures on the same
  • -55 modifiers are necessary to be used when you
    co-manage a surgical eye procedure and perform
    only the post-operative care with a surgeon.

  • Conclusion
  • Being a billing service provider and an optometry
    expert is a different thing. How can you expect
    yourself as an optometry expert to undertake
    medical billing and coding like a pro? Thats why
    many optometrists choose to outsource optometry
    billing services to professional billers and
    coders simply to avoid claim denials and other
    data recording errors. In fact, optometry billing
    requires high-quality specific billing and
    coding, which is something not every billing
    service provider can handle. Therefore,
    outsourcing to the 24/7 Medical Billing Services

    of specialists with updated knowledge of all the
    specific requirements.
