I think I'm right but not sure...If a patient calls in to make an appt for possible Bleph lid surgery should the need to see the patient then order the visual fields in the chart before them being done. We have one doctor that wants them done both on the same day and wants the visual fields done 1st so they are there when he sees the patient.

That's not right, correct?

I would perhaps bill the VF code with a 52 modifier to indicate a reduced
service.

We did a visual field on a glaucoma pt, and tech and physician indicated the test was unreliable. Patient was uncomfortable taking vf, test was restarted- patient didn't appear to understand when to click. Can we still bill for this field, and if so do I use a modifier?? Thanks in advance.

We recently read in the October Issue of the Coding Alert the question that was asked regarding 10-2 red visual fields. My visual field tech just came to me with a question that I can not answer and I was hoping you could.

Her question was we do a 10-2 visual field threshold with multiple isopters non red. Is it still appropriate to bill 92083?

Thanks!

We did a visual field at the request of a PCP for a patient that had a stroke. We were suppose to just do the visual field and send it on, which is what we did. We billed the visual field with just the TC portion. Then after the PCP received the visual field they called back and asked if one of our doctors could do the interp and send him some form of communication, which we did.

My question is can we bill for the interp even though we didn't order the original test?

Thanks!
