Return Visit to See Technician for IOP Check
Question: A patient had a glaucoma visit with a documented plan to return in 30 days for an IOP check by technician. Can we bill for the return visit?
Answer: You can bill the IOP check as 99211 since the physician order documents what services need to be provided. The physician will need to review and sign the note. The treating physician must be onsite.
