First Coast Service Options (First Coast), your Medicare Administrative Contractor for the fee-for-service program in Florida, reached out to you in June, requesting your help in communicating important changes related to enrollment revalidation to your members to prevent potential loss of revenue to their practice or facility. We are contacting you again, asking your assistance in recommunicating this information as a reminder of its importance to the provider community.

The Florida Society of Ophthalmology (FSO) is partnering with JCAHPO and ATPO on an important initiative to recruit new employees as ophthalmic assistants to our members’ practices.

As a valued member of our nationally recognized society committed to the ophthalmology profession, we invite you to be a part of this pilot project. Our goal is to have 100 FSO members help us promote the profession to patients and candidates seeking a new and rewarding career.

The Academy and 60 other ophthalmic societies, including FSO, have issued new, more patient-centric guidelines for postoperative co-management of ophthalmic procedures.The Comprehensive Guidelines for the Co-Management of Ophthalmic Postoperative Care contains substantive changes to existing guidelines based on over six months of thoughtful review by an Academy-led Task Force on Co-Management Principles, the Academy Council and Board of Trustees.

Crosswalks between ICD-9 lists of covered diagnoses for certain services and the comparable ICD-10 diagnoses were imperfect in some LCDs, such as the Visual Field Testing LCD.  First Coast Service Options was made aware of this problem and corrected the disparities with assistance provided by the FSO Third Party Liaison Committee.

(Tallahassee) – The Florida Senate confirmed Gov. Rick Scott’s appointment of Dr. Gary Dolin, MD, FACS to the Florida Board of Medicine for a three-year term. Dolin is a former president and Ethics Chairman of the Florida Society of Ophthalmology (FSO).
