CDT 2019: Dental Procedure Codes from the American Dental Association is critical for keeping current records and submitting accurate, effective insurance claims for reimbursement. The 2019 edition reflects 24 changes that go into effect January 1, 2019, and includes 15 new codes, 5 revised codes, and 4 deleted codes. 2019 changes include delivery of noon-opioid drugs for pain management, measuring and documenting glucose levels prior to a procedure, use of translation services, and more.
CDT 2019: Dental Procedure Codes is an essential resource for any dental practice, and everyone in the practice knows how important it is to use accurate CDT Codes to avoid rejected claims. But codes are used for more than claims reimbursement. Since each code consistently records a service that was delivered, practitioners can build a thorough history of patient visits and treatment plans. This documentation may also protect practitioners in case questions arise about treatment that was rendered. The ADA provides the first resource available with the new coding information, and the only HIPAA-recognized code set for dentistry.
