Discretionary codes scotland

Does anyone know how to add code 288019- for two additions to a denture - on to r4? Have now called the support line twice with no success. Health board are saying it is a software problem and as usual r4 blaming health board. Clearly code is missing from the system and it needs adding and updating again.

Re: Discretionary codes scotland

Dear Seema,

Thank you for your question, code 288019 is definitely available in CS R4+, to chart it you need to put a code 2880 on the patients treatment plan. If you are doing this through the chart follow the steps below, then as with all Scottish discretionary codes the extension (last 2 digits), in this case 19 are added in the NHS claim once the course of treatment is completed. You add the extension under the Ext column in the NHS claim for code 2880.

1. Open an NHS course of treatment.

2. Click on the Plan button.

3. Click on the Add Code button.

4. Click on the option for Bridges.

5. Select code 2880 and click OK.

Kind Regards
