Typically, eye care practitioners don’t use the E/M codes for what most optometrists consider a general eye examination. They are more typically used for patient encounters where the patient presents with a medical complaint or a continuation of medical case management (i.e., glaucoma, allergy, dry eye). The five levels of E/M codes are universally applicable for all manner of disease, yet they are more complicated to apply and require more than one page of chart documentation for a comprehensive examination. So, what’s Optometry E/M Coding? The acronym ‘E/M’ stands for ‘evaluation and management’. An E/M code consists of five digits. The leading four digits are ‘9920’ for new patients and ‘9921’ for established patients. The fifth digit of the E/M code can range from level ‘1’ to level ‘5’, which directly translates to the level of reimbursement from the insurance. This means the higher the level, the higher the reimbursement.
