Procedure Coding with CDT
CDT 2020 codes are mandatory for reporting dental procedures and services provided from January 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020. Dental professionals must use HIPAA mandated CDT codes to report procedures and services on dental claims. There are significant changes in the CDT coding system for 2020; including new codes, revised codes and deleted codes. Accurate CDT coding puts you in control of the reimbursement process and reduces your audit liability.
