Envolve Continues to Grow

Please remember beginning Jan. 1, 2022, Envolve Dental will have three national product groups:


Health Insurance Marketplace (The Exchange)

As Envolve continues to expand, your current and prospective patients may have questions about your participation in these health plans. It is important to realize how this change may affect you. 

In January 2022, Wellcare will launch as the new face of Centene’s merged Medicare plans, joining Allwell, Fidelis Care, Health Net, ‘Ohana, Trillium Advantage and Wellcare. As a unified national brand, Wellcare focuses on giving today’s and tomorrow’s Medicare members the coverage they need, the simplicity they want, and the high-quality care they deserve. Envolve will administer the vision benefit under Wellcare, offering supplemental benefits beyond traditional Medicare coverage. 

Ascension Complete is a Medicare Advantage plan that doctors took an active role in designing. This network of providers came together from one of the nation’s leading non-profit health systems, Ascension, and is backed by Centene Corporation, a global healthcare leader. Together they are committed to delivering compassionate and personalized care to individuals and communities. Envolve will continue administering vision benefits to Ascension Complete members in 2022. 

Ambetter offers plans on the Health Insurance Marketplace in various states across the nation. Ambetter believes quality care is best delivered on a local level, partnering with local providers to provide access to the care they need. Envolve will continue to administer the comprehensive dental benefit under the Health Insurance Marketplace for 2022.

Best Practices for Using CPT II Codes 2022F-2033F and 3072F

Envolve Vision is committed to improving the health of our community by helping people with diabetes lead healthier lives. Vision is a vital part of diabetic care. Therefore, we are asking for your help ensuring our diabetic members are receiving both preventive and ongoing quality eye care. 

Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) II tracking codes can be used to measure performance. Category II codes reduce the need for record abstraction and chart review, which in turn reduces workload for physicians and staff. 

To help us identify those patients who are compliant with their diabetic retinal evaluations, please remember to report the following with claims: 

  1. 1. An appropriate diabetic diagnosis code (ICD-10) 
  2. 2. An appropriate examination, screening or diagnostic test code (CPT) 
  3. 3. An appropriate tracking code for performance measurement (CPT II) 

Please note 3072F corresponds to the result of a test performed during the year prior to the measurement period and not the present year. For tests performed in the current year, please report 2022F–2033F when applicable.


2022F  Dilated retinal eye exam with interpretation by an ophthalmologist or optometrist documented and reviewed; with evidence of retinopathy
2023F  Dilated retinal eye exam with interpretation by an ophthalmologist or optometrist documented and reviewed; without evidence of retinopathy
2024F  7 standard field stereoscopic retinal photos with interpretation by an ophthalmologist or optometrist documented and reviewed; with evidence of retinopathy

2033F  Eye imaging validated to match diagnosis from 7 standard field stereoscopic retinal photos results documented and reviewed; without evidence of retinopathy

Review Updated Clinical Policies

Envolve Vision’s clinical criteria, provider manuals, policies and procedures are available by logging into Eye Health Manager. Once logged in, clinical policies are located under Provider Resources, Policies and Procedures, Utilization Management. Important reminders, notices, plan specifics, and provider manuals can be found in the Providers and Provider Resources tabs. These are communicated to providers via fax, mail, or email. Clinical policies are reviewed quarterly and updated as needed.

Can I Add a Surcharge for PPE?

Ensuring patients mask up is a wise move in any medical practice. However, providers may not charge Medicaid and Medicare members for services that include fees to cover the costs of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as infection control fee, biohazard fee, miscellaneous fee, etc. 

PPE should be considered content of service. No existing policies allow these members to be charged an additional fee for PPE. 

Providers may not bill Medicaid and Medicare members directly for any services with or without a signed form. 

If your practice is charging patients for PPE, it is imperative you stop immediately. You are also required to identify Medicaid patients who may have previously been charged for PPE and dispense refunds. 

Please contact your state Customer Service representative with any questions.
