2022 ICD-10 updates – Ophthalmic Professional
Few codes impacting eye-care practices among this year’s changes.
It’s that time of year again. On Oct. 1, the new ICD-10-CM codes for the following year go live for use. Thankfully, not many new codes or changes for 2022 affect eye care. Don’t forget that you must use these new codes right away and not delay until January 2022.
To see these code changes, Medicare has a specific file for download known as the Tabular Addenda (tinyurl.com/OPICD2022 ). There is also a file showing changes to the Official Guidelines; we’ll cover that as well.
