CDT 2017: Dental Procedure Codes builds on previous code sets with codes that
fill documentation gaps, making it easier to code quickly and accurately. More
detailed options for documentation also provide better protection from legal
liability, as well as fewer rejected insurance claims. CDT 2017 is the most
up-to-date coding resource and the only HIPAA-recognized code set for dentistry.
With the emergence of electronic health care records (EHR), coding for specific
procedures is more important than ever.
Code changes include:
• 11 new codes
• 5 revised codes
• 1 deleted code
CDT 2017 contains:
• New periodontal and restorative codes to fill gaps and provide a continuum
of treatment depending on the clinical condition of the patient’s dentition
New codes for dental case management, which document the practice’s actions to
plan visits, coordinate care and provide counseling
• New code for managing
and documenting your interactions with patients’ medical care providers
Reduce the likelihood of claims rejection and increase reimbursement levels
with more precise coding with the help and expertise of the ADA.
