Get the technician visit right – Ophthalmology Management

For starters, it must be performed under your direct supervision.

The reimbursement for a visual field or any other test includes the set-up, instruction and performance of the test, whether performed by a physician or a technician. However, if the physician orders the patient to return for a test and visit with a technician, then 99211 might be appropriate if there is medical necessity to do so.

This article addresses the following questions:

  • How is a technician visit defined?
  • What supervision is required?
  • What does “direct supervision” mean?
  • What documentation is required?
  • What does Medicare allow for 99211?
