If a patient presents for a cleaning and it is determined that they need D4341 for each LL & LR quadrants, but only D1110 for the entire upper – how would this be billed out typically? Is the D1110 somehow absorbed into the fees for D4341? Or would it be up to the individual insurance companies? Would your answer change if the number of quads needed changed? Thank you!
These appointments should be divided into two visits. The RPS should be preformed together on the same day and the patient should return for a second appointment for the routine cleaning.
