e.g. WDS plans will say
Fluoride toothpaste following periodontal procedure 100%. I've spoken to the company and they suggested D0999. The EOB note read: description for this treatment has a valid CDT code and does not match the submitted procedure code. What code would be correct code for Clinpro 5000 dispensed for take home?
Can I bill D2930 and D1510 separately?
Is D7300 considered an implant?
Specialist #1 referred patient to specialist #2 for a broken tooth. Oral evaluation and x-rays were taken. Tooth was extracted at the same appointment. A separate charge from the tooth extraction fee, a consultation fee of $99.was charged. That second charge was denied by insurance. Is that not the correct code? Thanks!
Patient presents for extraction of tooth #32. Dentist is able to remove coronal portion, but unable to remove roots. Also, surgical handpiece used to remove bone. Patient is coming back in 3-4 weeks to try and get roots removed. How should we code this visit?
DD9951 is not for post care work of a crown.
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?
