Ohio Subscriber Answer Plaquenil is the trade name for hydroxychloroquine, a medication used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. It can have adverse effects on the lens and/or retina and, therefore, the primary care physician or rheumatologist treating the condition refers the patient to an ophthalmologist for monitoring ocular changes.

    Answer: When billing Plaquenil examinations, or any other high risk medication exams, it is appropriate to bill the systemic disease or any ocular manifestations as the primary diagnosis since many payers may not reimburse for the high-risk medication diagnosis as a stand-alone diagnosis.

    My Take on New Ocular Screening Guidelines for Plaquenil By Sergio Schwartzman, MD 12 October 2016 A recent article published by the American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO presented new recommendations for screening of patients being managed with hydroxychloroquine HCQ. Question What is the best way to code for Plaquenil toxicity observation first, if the patient was referred by the family doctor for a baseline exam prior to the start of treatment; second, if the patient returns six months after the start of treatment to assess ocular changes; and, third, if the patient returns six months later and shows adverse ocular changes?
