Data Collection on Global Surgery

MACRA, Section 1848(c)(8)(B), required collection of data to value global surgical packages including the number of and level of visits in the global period and other items and services related to surgery. The proposed rule contained onerous reporting requirements vehemently opposed by surgeons of all specialties. The final rule revised the reporting to include the following:

  • Submit with CPT code 99024
  • Applies to groups with 10 or more practitioners
  • Only in certain states: Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island
  • Report services reported annually by more than 100 practitioners and more than 10,000 times or have allowed charges in excess of $10 million annually
  • Mandatory reporting July 1, 2017
  • Can report beginning January 1, 2017

The following table lists the codes generally applicable to eye care providers. This list is not exhaustive and providers are encouraged to review the complete list at:
