I had my teeth removed in another country but did not have time to stay to have the stitches removed. I was charged $250 to have the stitches removed from the inferior maxillary. The code used was D7912, which is for complicated stitches bigger than 5 cm. The dentist did not take more than five minutes to remove the stitches. I understand that the removal of the stitches is part of the follow-up visit, but in this case, it is not a follow-up visit and the clinic must be paid. Thus, what is the correct code? Is it still D9999?
Should we bill 20240 superficial or 20245 deep for biopsy . I feel the codes our providers are selecting is incorrect they are picking 20245 (deep)
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?
Or is this procedure inclusive to the surgical extraction?
We no longer take impressions or diagnostic casts. Is there a CDT code that would cover the intraloral scan with our Itero when we are preparing a treatment/case work up for an Invisalign consult? Can we still bill out D0470 or do we use D0393?
