A Medicare Beneficiary Learns a Lesson
Date: May 2, 2004
Telephone calls to my office usually come from doctors, lawyers, office managers and anyone connected with billing and filing claims. So I was surprised when my secretary announced that Dr. Abraham’s patient, Mr. Singh, wished to speak with me. Somehow, Mr. Singh had learned that I am the reimbursement consultant for eyeonics, the manufacturer of a new accommodative IOL, the Crystalens. He was seeking answers to his questions about possible Medicare coverage for his cataract surgery using this state-of-the-art IOL.
