Our office took a panorex xray for a patient for purposes of teeth extraction at the oral surgeon. The patient wants me to send the Panorex xray claim to medical insurance since it is related. What code do I use for the Panorex and what would be the diagnosis code I put on the 1500 form?
70355 the diagnosis code would depend on the findings example why are the extractions being performed...impacted teeth, decay, etc.
