Can we bill for code D0470 along with code D7880 for a TMJ Appliance. Also if we are billing D09940 for an occlusal splint
You may bill D0470 along with D7880 as long as the casts are for diagnostic purposes and not being used to create the device. D7880 includes splints and therefore D9940 would be considered inclusive of D7880.
