Partner with Envolve Vision to Improve the Health of Diabetic Members

Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) II codes are a set of supplemental tracking codes that are used to measure performance. Reporting a Category II code for performance measurement decreases the need for record abstraction and chart review. This helps minimize administrative burden on physicians and staff.

Envolve Vision is committed to improving the health of our community by helping people with diabetes lead healthier lives. Vision is a vital part of diabetic care.

We are asking for your help to ensure our diabetic members receive both preventive and ongoing quality eye care. To help us identify those patients who are compliant with their diabetic retinal evaluations, please remember to report the following with claims:

  1. Submit ICD-10 code indicating the eye(s) involved and ensure code meets the highest level of specificity, as unspecified codes are often denied
  2. An appropriate examination, screening or diagnostic test code (CPT)
  3. An appropriate tracking code for performance measurement (CPT II)

Diabetic retinal evaluation CPT II codes are listed below:

Eye Exam With Evidence of Retinopathy 2022F Dilated retinal eye exam with interpretation by an ophthalmologist or optometrist documented and reviewed; with evidence of retinopathy

Routine retinal evaluation is recommended to reduce the risk of diabetes-related blindness. Exams do not require pre-authorization. Some health plans and products may require referral by a primary care physician (PCP) for specialty care.
