Purpose: To examine trends in retinal detachment surgery and associated reimbursements in the Medicare database Methods: Patients who underwent retinal detachment surgery were identified from a 5% sample of the Medicare database between 1995 and 1999. Specifically, we determined the number of patients who underwent 3 different retinal detachment procedures with the following CPT codes: 67107 (repair of retinal detachment with scleral buckle), 67108 (repair of retinal detachment with vitrectomy), and 67112 (repair of retinal detachment on patient having previous ipsilateral retinal detachment repair(s) using scleral buckling or vitrectomy techniques). The mean values for the total allowed reimbursement related to these CPT codes were determined between 1995 and 1999. Results: The number of Medicare patients who underwent these 3 retinal detachment procedures between 1995 and 1999 are listed in the table below:
