South Carolina legislators override veto of Eye Care Consumer Protection Law

On May 18, by a 39 to 3 vote, the Senate approved the veto override while the House voted a day later to override, 98 to 1, according to a press release by the AOA.

With support from the American Optometric Association, the South Carolina Optometric Physicians Association and the South Carolina Medical Association, the bipartisan bill mandates that eye care kiosks and similar technologies be held accountable and provide the same standard of care that is expected of a qualified eye care physician, according to the release.

ICD-10 Coding Exercises for Eyecare – 125 Questions

The EyeCodingforu has been posting ICD-10 coding exercises for Eyecare on our website the last two months. The attached document is the latest version with 125 coding exercises. Most, but not all of the answers, are on the 4-page cheat sheet. This document replaces all other ICD-10 coding exercise lists.

ICD-10 Coding for Eyecare Oct 1 2015 125 Questions

Use whatever method you’ve chosen to select codes:

  1. Cheat sheet
  2. Lookup program (Practice Management, ERM, or third-party)
  3. Coding from the manual.

Of course coding from the manual is the only way to ensure accurate, specific, and compliant coding. These questions will help you identify GAPS in your current knowledge and coding system and whether you may need additional training. After entering your codes on Thursday and Friday you might want to scan this list for codes used less frequently. The top 20% are easy. It’s best to become familiar with the less common codes before you have a busy day and then a half-dozen conditions you’ve never coded before. In addition there are bunch of exceptions and “gotcha’s” as I called them in ICD-10. Most took many months of study to find.

The answer key is available to all ICD-10 and Site License subscribers. The ICD-10 training will be updated several times with carrier-specific feedback and is good for one year from purchase.

Articles posted on the EyeCodingForum.com include definitions of mild, moderate and severe glaucoma stages, low and high risk glaucoma, the updated definition of “active treatment” for the “A” extender code, and much more.
