I have read in a past newsletter that 92002 can be used for 'routine exam' vs S0620. I would like to eliminate the use of s-codes and use '92002/92012' and '92004/92014' as my eye exam codes. Is this legal? If I use 92002 for routine eye exam must I include a separate charge for the refraction? Any suggestions on how I can structure a fee schedule for eye exams without running into a problem?

S codes are temporary HCPCS Level II codes that private payers, such as BCBS, have created and used. You do not have to use the S code unless you have a payer that requires you use it :)
