Tulsa, Oklahoma: Outsource Strategies International (OSI), a reputable medical billing and coding company is pleased to announce that its article, “January is Glaucoma Awareness Month: Spread the Word, Protect Vision”, has been published in BC Advantage Magazine’s Jan / Feb 2022 | Issue 17.1 (Billing and Coding Category).
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of vision loss and blindness, but its symptoms may not be obvious initially. More than 3 million people in the U.S. have glaucoma and the National Eye Institute expects this number to reach 4.2 million by 2030. Glaucoma Awareness Month is observed to spread awareness about this sight-stealing disease.
OSI’s article is authored by the company’s Senior Group Manager, Natalie Tornese, CPC, and discusses facts relating to the disease, symptoms and risk factors, and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. It also lists the ICD-10 codes to report glaucoma and related conditions as well as clinical documentation requirements. Accurate billing and coding are crucial for the financial health of medical practices.
Glaucoma Awareness Month is focused on spreading the word about glaucoma and educating people on the importance of taking steps to reduce the risk of vision loss. When patients understand their condition, they are likely to follow their prescribed care plans and adopt a healthy lifestyle. As genetic factors contribute to glaucoma, family members of patients should be encouraged to get checked and screened for the disease.
