Dental insurance denied benefits for non-IV sedation code D9248 used for the extraction of coronal remnants for 3 primary teeth code D7111. I am being told to bill the medical insurance? Is this ok to do?
I remember a previous question I asked on this site and was told to submit a claim to medical if 7 or more extractions are being performed.
Thank you for any explanation of what to do in this situation. Our office frequently uses code D9248 and it is almost never a covered dental benefit. Does that mean I should be submitting it to the person’s medical insurance?
If the dental carrier is requesting you to bill medical first then you are to bill medical first.
