As you know in Wales our NHS patients who are under 25 and 60+ can have free examinations, but pay for any other treatment.
We have tried on numerous occasions when sending a claim to add fluoride toothpaste prescription, and/or toothbrushing advice to the treatment plan - however this stops us sending the claim as a pop up says that only fluoride varnish can be added to an age exempt examination. The prescription and toothbrushing advice are free treatments?!
Is this correct? - Do we just write the details in the notes rather than on the treatment plan?!
