What is CPT Code 92370

CPT code 92370 is designated for the repair and adjustment of spectacles. This code is used by healthcare providers to bill for services when they fix or modify a patient's glasses to ensure proper fit and function.

Does CPT 92370 Need a Modifier?

For the CPT code 92370, which pertains to the repair and adjustment of spectacles, several modifiers may be applicable depending on the specific circumstances of the service provided. Here is an ordered list of potential modifiers and the reasons for their use:

1. -25 - Significant, Separately Identifiable Evaluation and Management Service by the Same Physician on the Same Day of the Procedure or Other Service: This modifier is used if the provider performs a significant, separate evaluation and management service on the same day as the repair and adjustment of spectacles.

2. -52 - Reduced Services: This modifier could be used if the service performed was reduced in comparison to the usual service described by the CPT code, such as if only a minor adjustment was needed that did not require the full scope of repair typically included in this code.

3. -58 - Staged or Related Procedure or Service by the Same Physician During the Postoperative Period: If the spectacle repair is part of a planned sequence of treatments following an initial service, this modifier would be appropriate.

4. -59 - Distinct Procedural Service: This modifier indicates that the service is distinct or independent from other services performed on the same day. It might be used if the spectacle repair is performed in conjunction with other unrelated services.

5. -76 - Repeat Procedure by Same Physician: Use this modifier if the same provider needs to repeat the spectacle repair during the same session due to incomplete or inadequate service initially.

6. -79 - Unrelated Procedure or Service by the Same Physician During the Postoperative Period: If the repair is performed during the postoperative period of a different, unrelated procedure, this modifier would be necessary.

7. -RT and -LT - Right Side and Left Side: These modifiers specify which side of the spectacles was repaired if only one side required attention.

Each of these modifiers addresses specific circumstances that might affect billing and should be selected based on the exact nature of the service provided. It's important for healthcare providers to document the reasons for using any modifiers to ensure compliance and accurate reimbursement.

CPT Code 92370 Medicare Reimbursement

CPT code 92370, which pertains to the repair and adjustment of spectacles, is generally not reimbursed by Medicare. Medicare typically does not cover services related to eyeglasses or contact lenses except in specific circumstances, such as post-cataract surgery with intraocular lens placement. For routine eyeglass or contact lens adjustments, beneficiaries are usually responsible for the costs out-of-pocket.

However, it's important for healthcare providers to verify coverage specifics directly with Medicare or through the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) for their region, as there might be exceptions or changes in policy. Additionally, providers should ensure that any billing for non-covered services complies with Medicare regulations, including appropriate patient notifications about non-coverage and potential out-of-pocket costs.
