Delta Update

In July 2012, Delta Dental inadvertently changed its system to no longer pay a dentist for an initial comprehensive oral evaluation (code DO150) if the patient had an exam with another dentist within 5 years. This code is a benefit once every 60 months per dental office. 

Thank you to the member dentists who brought this discrepancy to the MDS's attention. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact Ellen Factor, MDS director of dental practice, at (800) 342-8747 ex228.
