That Ubiquitous Phrase – Ophthalmology Management

CPT definitions of ophthalmic diagnostic tests frequently include the phrase, “with interpretation and report.” What does this mean? And why should you care?

This article answers the following questions:

  • The doctor always reviews the test output. Isn’t this an interpretation?
  • What is required on a test interpretation?
  • Are there requirements regarding when an interpretation and report must be documented?
  • What about timing of the interpretation?
  • Do all tests require an interpretation and report?
  • How serious is this situation?
