HOW SHOULD WE BILL A DIABETIC EYE EXAM WHEN THE PATIENT WANTS TO USE THEIR ROUTINE BENEFITS ??

For diabetic beneficiaries, the primary diagnosis on the claim should also be routine vision screening, with diabetes listed as a secondary diagnosis. Failure to include the routine diagnosis or using an evaluation and management (E&M) procedure code may cause the claim to process as a diagnostic eye exam.
