The information on this page is intended to illustrate the benefits of Berkeley Optometry’s retinal screening program.


Point-of-care telehealth programs significantly increase retinal screening/ HEDIS rates, and can significantly reduce costs. Specifically:

  • Digital DRS can increase rates of compliance with retinal screening of all patients by 50% or more.
  • Particularly effective in raising rates amongst the uninsured.
  • Significantly decreases patient wait times for DRS.

Stakeholder Benefits

Digital Health offers a sustainable financial model to support DRS services.

Coding Procedure

Note*: This method cannot be used with all retinopathy screening programs. The program must be validated as described below under CPT II codes. Any program using the EyePACS methodology qualifies, since EyePACS is a Level 3 American Telemedicine Association-approved retinal screening program. Level 1 and 2 programs do not qualify.

  • CPT & HCPCS codes (include both)
    1. 99213 (Office Visit CPT code)
    1. G0467 (HCPCS code for FQHCs)
  • ICD-10 Diabetic Retinopathy Codes (automatically provided on EyePACS report)
  • If screening for Hypertension: Hypertension-related codes (NOT provided on EyePACS report)

No Hypertensive Retinopathy: I10 


Any Hypertensive Retinopathy: H35.039

  • NPI (National Provider Identification)

Use the NPI of a UC Berkeley Optometrist, who would need to be credentialed as an in-house provider with the clinic, as well as with the health plan.
