Correct Billing Of Vision Codes
Original Effective Date: 12/12/2002
Revision Effective Date: 11/01/2013
When billing for lenses with add-on features, the specific eyeglass lens as well as the add-on feature of the lens must be billed. For example, if billing for a progressive lens feature for a bifocal spherocylinder lens, the specific eyeglass lens code (i.e., V2200) must be billed as well as the code for the progressive lens add-on feature (V2781). The Coding Guidelines portion of the Refractive Lenses policy in the DMERC Region D Supplier Manual contains additional information on correctly coding and billing these vision codes.
