Can I charge for blind spot mapping?
I advise against charging separately for office PC based blind spot mapping. The procedure takes only a couple of minutes to perform, if you have an attentive patient.
I view blind spot mapping as ONE of MANY functional assessments used in an effort to determine if there is any brain laterality (hemisphericity), such as: bilateral blood pressure; palatal paresis; soft pyramidal (extensor) weaknesses; anisocoria, to name a few. Blind spot mapping is just another way of assessing the central integrative state of the Thalamus. It is a part of the total examination findings.
If you do a comprehensive neurological assessment, it would be appropriate to charge accordingly for the total time spent in evaluation.
