We recently had a patient come in for a filling. About a week after the filling was placed the patient was seen for normal cold sensitivity with the recent filling. What is the proper code to use for the post treatment appointment.
Typically this would be considered inclusive in the initial procedure, however, some carriers will allow you to code for a limited exam D0140.
