Vision Claim Coding for Disposables Contact Lens
« on: October 08, 2008, 12:40:33 PM »
This is probably simple... Can someone tell me whether codes V2500 - V2599 include disposables?  And how can you then tell if they are disposable or not?

Thanks.

so, the V-Codes  are typically NOT disposables?  That was what I thought - but in discussion another provider is coding with V2501/ V2520 and calling them disposables??

Thanks for your quick response!

Actually most of the providers we know do that also, use the V codes for the disposables.   :-\
