Question: Ivoclar has the only antimicrobial varnish. They are getting the same questions that I get on what code to use for this varnish. Can you help me with this?
The issue has to do with D0150 and D0180 and the use of D04910. We understand scenarios of D0120 with D4910, and D0180 and D4910. The question has to do with D150 and D4910. We could see a scenario where a perio pt returns after a three year absence from our practice and presents as periodontally stable. Would we be justified using D0150 with a D4910?
Question: If a patient is seen for site specific pain, a pax is taken, the DDS numbs the site and has the hygienist debride and place a site of Arrestin, can the hygienist bill out the D9110 under his/her initials? The DDS typically does not bill for LA when a patient comes in for D0140/D0220 for either a cracked tooth or a hot tooth needing RCT and are in extreme pain. Today was a first and I’m a little confused over who should or can get “credit” for the code. So is the hygienist who was directly involved. I don’t believe the palliative tx code specifically applies to the DDS when tracking production but thought I would ask you for input.
