What type of reimbursement can I expect by performing NPDS/AquaFlow?

0

This glaucoma implant procedure is most often billed as a trabeculectomy (CPT 66170) or an Aqueous Shunt (CPT 66180). As with all procedures, you will establish your Usual and Customary (U&C) fee for the particular procedure code. Private pay patients will pay your U&C fee with third party payers reimbursing at their established rates. Please see the AquaFlow Monograph for current Medicare rates for the procedure. If you have any further questions or concerns about the AquaFlow collagen glaucoma implant and its use in relieving intraocular pressure for open-angle glaucoma cases please contact STAAR Surgical Company, or search the company’s collection of professional publications.
