1. Can a bill be submitted to a dental insurance for co-pay payment after claim was paid by medical insurance.
2. If so, naturally we would need to change the billing code from medical to dental. COrrect. Ex. TMJ appliance 21089 medical to D7880 . Thank you.
Yes, you may bill dental as a secondary carrier to the medical plan payment. You will need to change the code on the dental claim form and submit the EOB from medical along with stating the code description of CPT code in box 35 of the ADA claim form
