As refractive cataract surgery becomes more popular, questions about comanagement become more frequent. Here is what you need to know for Medicare billing.

This article answers the following questions:

  • Is comanagement permitted when patients undergo cataract surgery with premium IOLs?
  • May the noncovered physician services be comanaged?
  • What is included in the package of noncovered physician services?
  • How is the value of this package determined?
  • In a comanagement situation, how is the value of this package divided between the two physicians?
  • Who should obtain a financial waiver in reference to noncovered services?
  • May the surgeon collect a single fee for all of the noncovered services and pay the referring doctor for his services?
