Chicago– Dental codes are now available at the touch of a button with the 2013 Dental Code Check app. The app is available for $19.99 for Apple via the iTunes Store and Android mobile devices via Google Play.
The new CDT Code Check 2013 app contains all of the CDT Codes, and is an especially handy practice management tool for dentists and dental staff who travel between offices. It is also ideal for working on claim forms and looking up procedure codes when the CDT Manual is unavailable.
The app was created from the American Dental Association’s CDT 2013: Dental Procedure Codes book. The CDT Code, which is another name for the Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature, a standard for recording dental services in patient records, on paper claim forms, and on HIPAA standard electronic claim transactions.
The CDT Code Check 2013 app’s features include:
- A complete listing of 2013 CDT Codes including category of service, subcategory, procedure code, nomenclature, and descriptor.
- A list of new, revised and deleted codes with tracked changes so you can see exactly what was changed.
