We are based in Scotland and was wondering if we are able to put on an ortho exam, we do not do the treatment that are referred to an Orthodontist for this but we would like to put a code on to show this has been done.
We would normally put this through as paper form but we are not allowed now due to the covid situation
This is mainly for children
Is this possible ??
Thanks for getting in touch.
Could you just clarify the code you would like to claim please?
It is my understanding, that paper claims for ortho have not been processed by paper since the introduction of eOrtho, about a year ago.
In order to submit any ortho claim to PSD, an ortho assessment must be carried out along with a claim for the exam i.e. code 121.
As far as I'm aware it would only be normal child exam that you could claim.
Maybe give PSD a quick call, they will be able to let you know if you are able to claim any additional codes.
