2012 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Volume 1, General Information : Section 6: Claims Filing : 6.10 Vision Claim Form

All vision services must be billed on a CMS-1500 paper claim form or the appropriate electronic formats. Vision claims submitted on other forms are denied with EOB 01145, “Claim form not allowed for this program.”
For eyewear claims beyond program benefits, (e.g., replacing lost or destroyed eye wear), providers must have the patient sign the "Patient Certification Form" and retain in their records. Do not submit form to TMHP.
Refer to:
Form VH.3, “Vision Care Eyeglass Patient (Medicaid Client) Certification Form” in Vision and Hearing Services Handbook (Vol. 2, Provider Handbooks).
The following table shows the blocks required for vision claims on a CMS-1500 paper claim form.
