Laser Cataract Surgery

AECOS also participated in the development of guidance on Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery. On November 16, 2012, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services published guidance entitled “Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery and CMS Rulings 05-01 and 1536-4.” The guideline addresses when physicians and facilities may charge Medicare beneficiaries for the use of a femtosecond laser when performing cataract surgery with the implantation of premium IOLs.

On December 17, 2012, AECOS hosted a webinar and live Q & A: “CMS Guidance on Femtosecond Lasers: What it means to physicians and facilities.”
