Description:
Changes in the health care industry, such as the Affordable Care Act and the trend to integrate oral health and primary medical care, brings many new challenges to the dental profession. There's an increased need for the dentist and team members to become familiar with both ICD-10-CM (diagnosis) and CPT (medical procedure) codes. This course is designed to be an introduction and an eye-opener to medical-dental cross coding. This course is not for the experienced medical claim biller, but rather will equip the attendee with the basic knowledge of ICD-10-CM and CPT code sets to successfully complete a medical claim form. Topics include, but are not limited to: trauma, sleep apnea, extractions, implants, TMJ/TMD, biopsies and CBCT.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • understand the purpose of the different code sets used in reporting medical procedures, including CPT, HCPCS and ICD-10-CM.
  • identify the most common dental procedures submitted to medical payers.
  • gain a basic knowledge of how to submit claims to a medical payer using the CMS 1500 (02-12) claim form.
