Floaters become more prevalent with age because of degenerative vitreous changes that occur throughout life. In youth, hyaluronan keeps collagen fibrils separated in the vitreous cavity and thus maintains transparency of the vitreous. However, with time, hyaluronan dissociates from collagen, causing cross-linking and aggregation of collagen with fibrous structures that scatter light-a process known as vitreous liquefaction.1-3. Clinically, a posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is often marked by a degree of fibroglial tissue known as a Weiss ring that is free floating over the optic nerve. A PVD allows the vitreous body to move when the head or eye moves, and thus, the Weiss ring and vitreous opacities cast shadows onto the retina that are perceived as floaters.. A PVD is present in approximately 65% of patients reaching the age of 65 years.4,5 Although most patients grow accustomed to the visual disturbance associated with Weiss rings and other floaters, many find them bothersome.6 Floaters can ...
Purpose: To characterize the first 10 years of intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) medication use for ophthalmic disease, including bevacizumab, ranibizumab, and aflibercept.. Design: A retrospective cohort study using administrative claims data from January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2015.. Subjects: Total of 124 835 patients 18 years of age or over in the United States.. Methods: OptumLabs Data Warehouse, which includes administrative claims data for over 100 million commercially insured and Medicare Advantage individuals, was used to identify patients receiving intravitreal anti-VEGF injections based on Current Procedural Terminology codes.. Main Outcome Measures: Total and annual numbers of intravitreal anti-VEGF injections, as well as injections per 1000 enrolled patients per general category of ophthalmic disease, overall and for each available medication.. Results: There were 959 945 anti-VEGF injections among 124 835 patients from 2006 to 2015. Among all injections, ...
It was with great interest that I read the article by Wang and colleagues (1), which summarizes the growing issue of resistance in treating sexually transmitted diseases. However, I was surprised to see the high gonorrhea incidence of African-American male patients (74.1%). This may lead to a false racial bias about the incidence of gonorrhea in the United States. I question the validity of this percentage, because of the lack of DNA testing of urine samples, which is the preferred method in many private practices and clinics. This test (Current Procedural Terminology code 87591) is more expensive, with a cost of $69.00 for the Neisseria gonorrhoeae test alone. The urine DNA testing is also routinely done for Chlamydia trachomatis at an additional cost of $69.00. Patients undergoing the DNA urine tests would thus need $138.00 plus the costs of the office visit and subsequent medicines, which are often given empirically because of lack of follow-up. Therefore, patients receiving such care would ...
There is no CPT code for elective endotracheal intubation. Airway access is necessary for general anesthesia and is not separately reportable. CPT code 31500 describes an emergency endotracheal intubation and should not be reported for elective endotracheal intubation. Visualization of the airway is a component part of an endotracheal intubation, and CPT codes describing procedures that visualize the airway (e.g., nasal endoscopy, laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy) should not be reported with an endotracheal intubation. These CPT codes describe diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopies, and it is a misuse of these codes to report visualization of the airway for endotracheal intubation ...

I think mixing AP codes with CP codes is risky. 86359, 86360, 86064 give slightly better technical reimbursement than 88185 (so it could appear that you are upcoding), and you cannot attach a professional code to them whether you look at them or not. Billing 88185 without an 88184 is like billing subsequent frozen sections, without an initial frozen section. That will certainly send out a red flag. Michael S. Icardi MD.

The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT)‡ codes and patient demographics outlined in the patient sample criteria identify the patients who are included in the measures group, otherwise known as the "denominator." The instructions further note that "CPT Category I procedure codes billed by surgeons performing surgery on the same patient, submitted with modifier 62 (indicating two surgeons, i.e., dual procedures), will be included in the denominator population. Both surgeons participating in PQRS will be fully accountable for the clinical action described in the measure."†. "Frequency" refers to how often the measure should be reported. To successfully report the perioperative measures group, quality data codes (QDCs) must be reported for all four measures, #20, #21, #22, and #23, for each patient each time a surgical procedure is performed during the reporting period. QDCs are CPT II codes that are used to report the clinical action required by the measure on the claims form, otherwise known ...

Since this issue of Perspectives focuses on tracheostomy and ventilator care, it seemed appropriate that the Dollars $$ Sense column address questions that speech-language pathologists may have concerning the appropriate CPT codes to use when billing for services. Just to refresh your memory, or in case you have missed the previous columns, CPT stands for Current Procedural Terminology. In 1966, the American Medical Association (AMA) established the CPT system. In 1978, the federal government created the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) to provide a standardized coding system for describing the specific items and services provided in the delivery of health care. The HCPCS (commonly pronounced hick-picks) includes two levels of codes ...
In order to save your life, the American Medical Association has created what are called CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) and HCPCS (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System), so that when a doctor orders a Platelet Count or a Hemoglobin count, they use a series of numbers. The HCPCS codes are standardized by the US Department of Health & Human Services here, and the CPT codes are standardized by the AMA here. When your doctor places a check in the box next to "005249", the nurse knows what test to order, the lab knows what test to perform, doctors billing department knows how much to bill, and the insurance company knows that they are paying for a Platelet count, and not a Hemoglobin test (which would be 005041 by the way ...

by TimH , Feb 23, 2015. In collaboration with 15 specialty surgical organizations, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has published and released its seventh edition of Physicians as Assistants at Surgery. The report is meant to provide guidance to CMS and third-party payors on how often an operation might require the use of a physician as an assistant. According to the ACS, a physician as an assistant during an operation should be a trained individual who can participate in and actively assist surgeons in completing surgeries safely. However, when surgeons are not available to serve as assistants, a qualified surgical resident or other qualified healthcare professional-such as a nurse or physicians assistant with experience in assisting a procedure-can be used. The Update To update the report, each participating organization reviewed the 2012 and 2013 American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes that were applicable to their specialty and classified by the ...

Procedural coding has followed a similar pattern to diagnostic coding. The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) is part of the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level I. The entire system is copyrighted and maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA). The HCPCS Level II pertains to supplies, medicines and other services during a patient visit. Evolution of technology and medicines has resulted in dramatic changes to HCPCS Type II. Punctuation of equilibrium happened in 1983 when the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) adopted the CPT system. Soon after, CPT became standard for all commercial payors. By 2000, the Transactions and Code Sets Final Rule mandated that CPT, HCPS Level II and other modifiers be the standard national medical code set (3).. Technological, social and philosophical pressures have triggered relatively large changes in coding, with evolution taking us from statistics on burials to anatomically precise coding that is integrated in modern electronic ...
Antonio E. Puente, PhD University of North Carolina Wilmington ([email protected]) In 1966, the American Medical Association developed a coding system known as Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) to describe professional health services.

By CATHY ELSINGER, PhD. Recent advances in functional neuroimaging techniques have revolutionized the approach to surgical planning. Blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional MRI (fMRI) is a noninvasive imaging tool with enormous potential in the field of brain mapping, combining high-resolution anatomical images and physiological information. Functional imaging data provides critical information to the neurosurgeon in terms of deciding which therapy to employ and in considering therapeutic approaches that might otherwise be dismissed due to perceived procedural risk. Adopting fMRI technology for clinical brain mapping has increased not only due to improved outcomes but also in part to the introduction of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes which provide a mechanism for insurance reimbursement.. During the early years of BOLD imaging, software for stimulus delivery and analysis of BOLD imaging data was developed by researchers and available as freeware. Peripheral equipment for ...
