While at my dentist”s office for a temporary filing for a tooth that had chipped, the dentist mentioned that the oral surgeon from his office wasn’t busy and he stepped in to chat for a minute.
Codes D0220 and D0140 were billed to my insurance company on that date of service.
I was also charged $87 for a consultation that was not billed to insurance. I asked why it wasn’t billed and was told that it wasn’t covered. I asked what procedure code and was given D9810.
What this proper?
If we pull tooth k and place a space maintainer on tooth L to hold space till tooth 20 comes in what tooth do we bill out for code D1510?
Pt never developed #7. When she was a teenager a maryland bridge was make the pontic is an old metal that is attached to a porc maryland retainer. pt fractured only #7 and to be conservative, we only replaced #7. A crown was fabricated to attach to a metal wing pontic. Insurance denies every code in send including D6999 and will not help at all with a correct code. Please advise on this and if you need more explanation, please contact.
Could reporting two restorations for the same tooth on different surfaces be considered unbundling? Anesthetic, rubber dams, review of radiographs, may be part of the “first” restoration
I’ve found conflicting information about billing more than one restoration on the same tooth on the same day. I’ve seen information state that if the surfaces are not touching, then it is appropriate to report more than one restoration; however, I’ve also read that this practice may be considered fraudulent or abusive as more specific restoration codes are available. That this maybe considered unbundling. Which is true?
How to claim delta dental x ray? I just claimed New exam 0150 and FMX, they denied for FMX service.
For example, there is the impression, the wax up, the try ins (and all of the times it takes to get this right with the lab). By the end of the process, being in network with their insurance causes us to lose out on money when we simply bill out the denture itself. Is there a way to bill out all of the different steps to insurance so that the costs are covered even though the negotiated rate with their insurance is so low?
Can you enter two separate restoration codes on the same day for the same tooth or is it correct to bill as a two surface restoration even though the restorations are not touching. For instance tooth #30 has occlusal but also separate buccal.
I know there are snow med and snow dent - but the ada has their own list of condition codes right?
