    For the baseline exam done before the patient is taking Plaquenil, use an E/M code with the arthritis as the primary diagnosis. And if you do see adverse changes during a follow-up check for Plaquenil toxicity in most parts of the country you should still use V58.69 as the primary diagnosis, but use the changes as a secondary diagnosis, as well as the arthritis or whatever the reason is for the drug to be taken, a few Medicare carriers will want the ocular change as the primary diagnosis. Generally, the plaquenil eye exam is something everyone here has done. These are the patients where you need to knock out that extra 10-2 in your exam.except that may not be true anymore.

    Multifocal Electroretinopathy measures electrical responses of various cell types in the retina. It is thought that although the bull’s eye seen on ophthalmic exam represents a disruption of the pigmented part of the retina, it is the photoreceptors that are the targets of hydroxychloroquine toxicity. Our office has been including a second diagnosis for the disease related to Plaquenil use. We aren't seeing denials using that method but from a coding standpoint I don't know if that is a 'more correct' coding or if we are just billing different insurances and getting different responses regardless of our using a second dx code. Remember, any patient who is at a high risk for Plaquenil toxicity should be examined on an annual basis following the baseline exam. The goal of monitoring/screening is to identify early macular damage prior to irreversible vision loss or even before visible signs of bull’s eye maculopathy.
