    If you take Plaquenil for your inflammatory disease, your ophthalmologist will check for damage to the retina in the back of the eye while you take the drug. Plaquenil is a pretty widely used drug so I figure she should have an opinion on it. I would feel more comfortable having the baseline exam done first BUT I am pretty eager to get started on it ASAP as my eye is starting to bug me due to the morphea that is slowly spreading. Aug 01, 2009 i have only been taking plaquenil for 18 mths and recently found out that i have macula degeneration, my last eye exam was only 6 mths ago and there was no sign of anything then. i strongly advise 6 monthly eye exams and if there is the slightest blurring of vision get it checked out.

    You’ll generally also pay 20% of allowable charges plus any applicable Part B deductible. You must get care from a provider who accepts Medicare assignment in order to be covered.

    • How to Succeed in Plaquenil Screenings.

    Answer When billing Plaquenil examinations, or any other high risk medication exams, it is appropriate to bill the systemic disease or any ocular manifestations as the primary diagnosis since many payers may not reimburse for the high-risk medication diagnosis as a stand-alone diagnosis. Testing services performed should have the high-risk. Apr 20, 2011 Remember, any patient who is at a high risk for Plaquenil toxicity should be examined on an annual basis following the baseline exam. The goal of monitoring/screening is to identify early macular damage prior to irreversible vision loss or even before visible signs of bull’s eye maculopathy. My Plaquenil exam is paid for by my medical insurance, not my vision insurance. Vision is for optometry, glasses, etc. Opthamology comes out of medical. I have a field of vision test, some other sort of test, and then an actual exam. It's about $350 for me as well because it's not done by an optometrist.

    The Risk of Retinal Toxicity with Plaquenil Aug 29, 2014 One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits. As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur.
