How to Use Optometry-Related Tariffs and ICD Codes

  • Updated

Optometrist have set tariffs, as well as ICD codes that they deal with day in and day out. 

Why not set up Juvonno with the proper system settings for Tariffs, and ICD Codes to give your practitioners and administrators a streamlined and automated approach to appointment billing and claims.



Go to Settings>Specialties and add Optometry / Optometrist  code 56


Juvonno comes set up the appropriate Tariffs inside of your Juvonno settings.

If you do not currently see the tariffs that your optometry clinic uses inside of tariff settings, be sure to contact your Juvonno account manager and inquire about uploading your optometry tariffs.


The most commonly used Tariffs in optometry are:

  • Prefix: 7 - 8545
  • Prefix: 7 - 8546
  • Prefix: 7 - 9728
  • Prefix: 7 - 9726
  • Prefix: 7 - 9724

Unlike regular hotlinks, tariffs are used for claims back to health authorities. Therefore they only are turned on when creating a claim.


Creating a Claim with Tariffs

To create a claim with tariffs you first will need the following settings turned on.
