Bausch & Lomb earns NTIOL status for two lens products


Bausch & Lomb has earned NTIOL status for its SofPort Advanced Optics and SofPort Advanced Optics with Violet Shield lenses.

Key Points

Rochester, NY-The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has granted new technology IOL (NTIOL) designation to two lenses (SofPort Advanced Optics and SofPort Advanced Optics with Violet Shield, Bausch & Lomb) for their spherical aberration-reducing design.

Based on this new designation, which was effective March 6, Medicare will increase by $50 its reimbursement to ambulatory surgery centers when cataract procedures are performed with either of these lenses.

The NTIOL designation and adjusted payment will remain in effect until Feb. 26, 2011.
