We are FQHC. One of our patient’s needed clearance for an organ transplant. They originally saw a medical provider. That provider sent a request to our dentist asking for them to evaluate the patient to be cleared for the transplant. The patient made an appointment on following date of service. Our dentist evaluated and cleared patient. What is the best code for this? We are thinking D9310.

I agree. D9310 would be the correct code for this service.

D9310
consultation - diagnostic service provided by dentist or physician other than requesting dentist or physician; A patient encounter with a practitioner whose opinion or advice regarding evaluation and/or management of a specific problem; may be requested by another practitioner or appropriate source. The consultation includes an oral evaluation. The consulted practitioner may initiate diagnostic and/or therapeutic services.
