Dilation Requirement for Exams
Question: What exam codes require dilation?
Answer: Dilation is required for E&M codes 99204, 99205 and 99215. Comprehensive Eye visit codes state they may be dilated. Auditors do look for documentation of dilation, so if it is not performed, it would be wise to indicate why it was contraindicated.
