Have you ever asked the difficult questions?
I have–and the answers will surprise you.

This support service will use a formal Ticket System plus include a searchable Knowledge-Base (KB), organized by category with hundreds of the most common Eyecare coding and billing questions. The goal is to answer all posted questions within 24 hours. The KB will be available 24X7. Most questions should be answered the same day, during normal business hours (M-F, 8-5).
Until the end of October, you can test out the system below. You can view over 75 of the most common questions in the knowledge-base without creating a user ID.
After Nov 1 if you wish to test the system send us an email on our contact form and we will set you up with a temporary ID. You have a coding question, post it and then you will be notified of a response within 24-48 hours.
This Priority Q and A service is available for only $25 per month or free toall EyeCodingForum:
- Site License clients ($499 per year)
- ICD-10 Comprehensive Coding Course clients ($275 until Oct 1 2016).
Remember just one paid claim or coding question solved could pay for the service for an entire year.

Coding Specialist in Eyecare
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.
Use whatever method you’ve chosen to select codes:
- Cheat sheet
- Lookup program (Practice Management, ERM, or third-party)
- 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.
