April CCI Edits Do Not Impact Ophthalmology
The latest National Correct Coding Initiative edits, V23.1, do not impact ophthalmology as they have previously. The latest round of quarterly bundling edits takes effect April 1.
Coding tip: When submitting multiple services, remember to always check bundling edits for all the code combinations. For example, CPT code 92134 OCT is not bundled into CPT code 92250 Fundus photography, however fundus photography is bundled into OCT. z
