We could not apply varnish fluoride in the office on little kids due to cooperation. We send varnish fluoride home so parents could apply. Can we charge for varnish fluoride to insurance?
No, you may not bill this to the insurance. Coding guidelines clearly state topical flouride varnish must be delivered under the direct supervision of a dental professional and delivered in the dental office.
