I need more clarification on Code D9951 (Limited Occlusal Adustment - Limited) I see in my ADA CDT book it states it is not supposed to be used when the procedure is for a bite adjustment when doing it post-delivery of something such as a crown/bridge. Is there another code to use when the doctor adjusts the bite after delivery or should it relate with another code? Thanks!
I am trying to code for an immediate full implant supported hybrid denture for an upper arch and I am unsure of which codes to use. The oral surgeon will be providing the implants and multiunit abutments and I will be providing the prosthesis. I believe CDT code D6078 is for the abutment supported fixed denture. I cannot find the code for the temporary immediate prosthesis. Is there a separate code? Are there other codes I need to be using for this case? Thank you in advance!
I have two claims for crowns that have been denied - two separate patients, one insured with MetLife, the other Principal. I have been through one appeal with MetLife and two appeals with Principal. I have never had claims denied for lack of necessity. They were necessary and obviously I did not provide the correct documentation/narrative. I would appreciate any help getting insurance benefits for these two patients. Thank you, Beverly Knight
