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 email@example.com. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com.
The Washington Oral Health Foundation needs dentists and hygienists volunteers for 2 and 4 hour shifts on Friday, October 10 in Kennewick. Volunteers will be on hand to triage and screen patients. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Ruth Abate at (206) 973-5229, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
