August 19, 2013
Accuracy in documenting dental procedures is a catalyst to quicker reimbursement—and the release of the ADA's new book, CDT 2014: Dental Procedure Codes can help busy practices realize that goal.
CDT 2014: Dental Procedure Codes (J014) is $39.95 for members. The retail price is $59.95.
Recognized as the official source for the most up-to-date dental procedure codes, the ADA CDT 2014 products earn that distinction with each new edition. CDT 2014 includes updated information such as:
- 29 new procedure codes;
- 18 revised procedure codes;
- four deleted procedure codes;
- seven changes to the subcategories and their descriptors.
The 2014 edition also includes a 2012 ADA Dental Claim Form; a new subcategory of service for fabrication of medicament carriers; and revised caries risk assessment codes to provide a standard means of reporting, which is especially useful in public health dentistry and for Medicaid documentation. It also includes updated procedure codes that reflect guidance from such areas of specialized dentistry as endodontics, orthodontics and prosthodontics.
A practice may compound accuracy, ease and speed when using CDT 2014 by supplementing it with Dental Coding Made Simple: Resource Guide and Training Manual, 2013-2014 (J443), aimed at the dental team.
Revised every two years, sections include 151 common questions/answers; more than 25 coding exercises; an illustrated implant section; and a continuing education exam with five CE credits.
Dental Coding Made Simple: Resource Guide and Training Manual, 2013-2014 (J443) is $49.95 for members. The retail price is $74.95. Save 50 percent on the product when also purchasing CDT 2014: Dental Procedure Codes (J014) with promotional code 13130 by Sept. 15.
The 2014 CDT Code Check App for the iOS (iPhone, iPad) and Android-powered mobile devices (phones and tablets) will be available in early October for $19.99 in the Apple iTunes Store and the Android Market. The 2013 CDT Codes are free when you download the 2014 version.
