Billing for Refractive Surgery – Suzanne Corcoran, COE

In general, surgery to correct refractive error is considered an elective procedure and not reimbursed by Medicare. However, if cataract surgery results in anisometropia, further surgery may be billable. Refractive errors following cataract surgery can usually be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Occasionally, however, the refractive error is large enough to create anisometropia. If this can’t be corrected with glasses or contact lenses, then additional surgery is warranted and may be covered by Medicare.
