If a patient is seen for their comprehensive eye exam but returns a week later for the dilation, should an office visit 99213 be charged along with the extended ophthalmoscopy?

SuperCoder Posted 4 Year(s) ago

Extended ophthalmoscopy is used for an exam that goes beyond the routine ophthalmoscopy exam and involves the use of indirect ophthalmoscope and indirect lens. Extended ophthalmoscopy is usually performed for serious retinal problems. If the documentation of the exam supports the use of Extended Ophthalmoscopy codes, then codes from that range can be used over and above the office visit code.
