Primary Care Optometry News, February 2017
Charles B. Brownlow, OD
I retired from active consulting Jan. 1, 2016, but I do not think I will ever retire from being concerned about eye care, eye care patients, my optometric colleagues and the importance of excellent medical records. Indeed, Medicare would not have been repaid to the tune of $5.6 billion in 2016 if providers totally understood the importance of keeping good records.
As many of you have heard me say (or have read in this publication), the keys to excellent health care and correct billing for that care are simple. Complying with those keys apparently is not. Not complying with those keys can be very expensive.
