Ophthalmology Billing Services

WeCare is dedicated to enhancing the efficiency of your RCM system.

Wide Range Of Services

Medical billing for ophthalmology, like in any field of medicine, is inherently complex. The billing codes are intricate, necessitating in-depth knowledge not only of coding and billing but also of the specific practice. Furthermore, these codes undergo annual changes. In addition to code updates, insurers and government payers frequently modify their policies and plans. Coverage rules may even vary depending on the state you are in. These constant changes and intricacies make ophthalmology medical billing a challenging task.


Busy Medical Staff To Keep Up

The continuous changes in medical billing guidelines make it impractical for busy medical staff to stay current. Outsourcing to a professional medical billing company, such as WeCare, has consistently proven to be a successful solution for practices of all sizes. By entrusting your ophthalmology medical billing to us, you benefit from our expertise in revenue cycle management (RCM) specifically. This focus allows us to stay up to date on the latest billing and coding changes, ensuring that your practice’s financial aspects are expertly managed.

Detailed Modifiers

Ophthalmology billing involves the use of modifiers in conjunction with basic medical billing codes to indicate whether both eyes were affected or if it was specific to the left or right eye. Additionally, modifiers are required when minor procedures are performed on the same day as an office visit. Billers and coders must also have the knowledge and expertise to accurately code for multiple procedures conducted in the same setting. The precision of these coding and billing details is essential in ophthalmology to ensure accurate claims and reimbursements.


Bundled codes

In ophthalmology billing, charges for services are frequently bundled together to simplify coding. However, this necessitates a deep understanding on the part of medical billers and coders regarding the contents of each bundle. There are situations where a physician may determine that something additional is needed or a substitution is required within the bundled services.

Billers must be well-versed in how to accurately document these additions and exceptions to prevent services from being considered unnecessary and subsequently rejected by payers. The ability to navigate the intricacies of bundled services and make appropriate notations is vital to ensuring successful claims and reimbursements in ophthalmology billing.

Multiple Insurers And Payers

In ophthalmology billing, it’s important for billers to be not only knowledgeable about the coverage options but also diligent in determining which insurance to bill. Before submitting a claim to Medicare, billers must thoroughly investigate whether any other insurance could be billed, such as a spouse’s employer plan, Railroad Retirement, specific union-related coverage, VA benefits, or even coverage for an injury under no-fault insurance. This careful consideration of the patient’s insurance options is essential to ensure accurate and timely billing in ophthalmology.
