Hi, My dentist has been charging me 2 exam codes every visit D0180 & D0120. I know D0180 is more extensive but I am wondering if D0120 is included in that. Or if they are supposed to be coded separately. Please advise. I refuse to go back to this dentist unless I confirm they are correct. Thank you! Nora

There are many dentists. Don't go back one you don't trust, don't go back to one who charges a lot and DEMAND any dentist be transparent about pricing.

Thank you, that is what I'm leaning towards, I am hoping I can find concrete proof that I should not be charged for both at the same time, so I can go back to them and complain. But yes, I have always had a weird feeling at this place, so it's best to just let it go. Thank you!

I'm sorry, but your question is not a legal question.

If you are covered by insurance, you should ask your insurance. If you are self-pay, then they are entitled to charge what they want. If you don't like it, as mentioned above, go somewhere else.
 
It's not a legal question...I'm asking about how to correctly code a dentist exam... It should be common knowledge and not some secret.....
