Glasses After Cataract Surgery

Glasses after cataract surgery can be really confusing for some of our practices, so let’s see if we can help you out! If your patient is insured by traditional Medicare, then the glasses are filed to DMERC, not Medicare, but you have to be credentialed with DMERC. However, if your patient has a Medicare Advantage plan, then the glasses are filed to the replacement plan, not DMERC. If the patient’s primary insurance in a commercial insurance, file there.  Hope that helps!  And please remember, any time you have a billing questions, don’t hesitate to call your coordinator.  We love sharing our expertise.
