Interpreting Remote Fundus Photography
Can ophthalmologists work with internal medicine physicians in caring for diabetic patients where internal medicine provides fundus photography (CPT code 92250 -TC) and the ophthalmologist provides the interpretation (CPT code 92250 –26)?
Proper coding for remote diabetes screening for the internal medicine physician is CPT code 92227 Imaging of retina for detection or monitoring; with remote clinical staff review and report. The Ohthalmologist should use the code CPT code 92228 for the interpretation and report; with remote physician (ophthalmologist) or other qualified health care professional interpretation and report.
