You should bill them separately. Most insurance companies will downgrade D0272 and D0330 to D0210. If you are in-network with them you will have to do what they say. But, you should bill for what you do. Just because they process it as a full mouth series does not mean you bill it that way. Page 61, Coding Q & A #11 in the CDT coding companion book asks, Are four bitewings and a panoramic radiographic image considered a comprehensive series (D0210) of radiographs? The answer is no.
