July 2018 CCI Edits Do Not Impact Ophthalmology
CMS has released the current Correct Coding Initiative Edits (CCI), Version V24.2, which goes into effect July 1. However, there is no impact to ophthalmology. These edits bundle two or more services together. Always look at each code combination when two or more services are being performed as not all codes show a bundle. Often the lower allowable service is bundled into the higher allowable service. To see all CCI edits, the Academy provides a link to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services site on the coding updates and resources page. You can also find current edits in the Coding Coach print and online.
