Dr. Johnston is our retina specialist and he treats patients for macular degeneration, diabetic eye diseases, and retina tears and detachments. Dr. McKusker is the clinic’s pediatric specialist and she sees patients of all ages for routine eye care. Dr. Miller is Wyoming’s only glaucoma specialists. She also is a cataract surgeon and she sees patients for routine eye care.
Each of our eye doctors is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. The AAO is a great resource for learning more about eye care and eye conditions as well as information about eye surgery. The Academy also has additional information about eye doctors (ophthalmologists). The Academy’s patient education website can be found at GetEyeSmart.org, which is also available in Spanish at OjosSanos.org.
ATTENTION MEDICARE PATIENTS
Ophthalmic patients are reaching out to Congress this week to tell them to protect how they pay for services incurred before, during, and after surgery.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services decision to eliminate all Medicare 10- and 90-day global surgery payments means that seniors and the disabled would be responsible for separate copayments and for each related office visit. Currently, patients are responsible for one co-payment that covers the surgery and pre-and post-operative appointments.
Medicine is concerned that by creating a financial barrier to care, surgical patients will avoid the follow-up visits they need for quality outcomes. Moreover, patients with more complex medical needs who require more follow-up visits will be unfairly impacted by this policy, because they will be responsible for additional copayments.
