    How to Report the Measure

    IRIS Registry Manual Reporting

    Numerator: Patients who had best-corrected visual acuity of 20/40 or better (distance or near) achieved within 90 days following cataract surgery.

    For patients who receive the cataract surgical procedures specified in the denominator coding, it should be reported whether or not the patient had best-corrected visual acuity of 20/40 or better achieved within 90 days following cataract surgery.

    Patients who have any of the listed significant ocular conditions [comorbid] in the exclusion criteria should be removed from the denominator; these patients have existing ocular conditions that could impact the outcome of surgery and are not included in the measure calculation for those patients who have best corrected visual acuity of 20/40 or better (distance or near) achieved within 90 days following the cataract surgery.

    Include only procedures performed through Sept. 30 of the performance period. This will allow the post-operative period to occur within the performance period.

    Clinicians who indicate modifier 55, postoperative management only OR modifier -56, preoperative management only, will not qualify for this measure

    Category II Codes

    • Performance met (patient included in numerator and denominator): 4175F Best-corrected visual acuity of 20/40 or better (distance or near) achieved within the 90 days following cataract surgery
    • Performance not met (patient not included in numerator, but included in denominator): 4175F 8P Best-corrected visual acuity of 20/40 or better (distance or near) not achieved within the 90 days following cataract surgery, reason not otherwise specified

    IRIS Registry EHR Reporting

    Instructions: Percentage of patients aged 18 years and older with a diagnosis of uncomplicated cataract who had cataract surgery and no significant ocular conditions impacting the visual outcome of surgery and had best-corrected visual acuity of 20/40 or better (distance or near) achieved within 90 days following the cataract surgery.

    These are the required elements to be documented at least once a year to meet the measure performance requirements:

    • Cataract surgery performed (based on cataract CPT codes);
    • No significant ocular conditions (specified by a list of codes to be excluded);
    • 20/40 visual acuity achieved within 90 days.

    How CMS Scores Your Performance

    • If you successfully report a measure for less than 60 percent of your patients, you will earn points based on your practice size:
      • Small practices (≤ 15 clinicians) will receive 3 points,
      • Larger practices (> 15 clinicians) will receive 1 point.
    • If you successfully report a measure for at least 60 percent of your patients, but do not report at least 20 cases, you will receive 3 points.
    • If you report this measure for at least 60 percent of applicable patients and on at least 20 patients during a reporting period, you will earn points based on the decile that corresponds to your performance rate. Not all measures offer points for every decile.
