It is necessary to document each component of dental implant services to ensure the highest possible reimbursement. In addition, accurate documentation is also vital from the point of view of ongoing patient care. Implant procedures that meet the threshold of medical necessity are eligible for medical billing. A reputable dental billing company can appropriately code CDT codes during claims submission, based on the insurance availed.
