This week, the ADA announced the release of CDT 2015. New books, training tools, and an app help dental professionals stay current on dental coding. Don't wait until it's too late – allow time for staff training before the codes go into effect on Jan. 1, 2015.
Effective September 15, 2014, the Health Care Authority (HCA) will require providers to send expedited authorization requests via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body of the email providers will need to indicate the medical reason to prioritize the request and the urgency of a client’s appointment date. Please note that extraction authorization requests will no longer be expedited unless emailed to email@example.com. If providers do not receive a response to an extraction request seven days prior to a client’s appointment, please send a follow up email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
