Optometrist Rate Correction

August 30, 2011

The rates for selected optometry procedure codes have been corrected. The rate correction is retroactive to 9/1/2010. No action is needed by you as claims that previously were paid the incorrect amount are now being reprocessed. Providers will begin to see adjusted payments for these claims on their RA statements in the next two weeks. Due to the large number of claims, the reprocessing will occur over a four- to six-week period.
