A patient was seen and the doctor gave the Nitrous Oxide D9230 and also was able to give the a local anesthetic, but then the patient became uncooperative. The patient was then referred to a specialist. Can you bill for the D9230 alone where it was given and the procedure was attempted?
Yes, you may bill for the N2O however you must have a brief explanation accompany the claim.
