Attention: Dental providers, Clinics, Hospitals, and FQHCs

For dates of service April 1, 2023, and forward, dental providers/clinics must bill Current Dental Terminology (CDT) code D0140-Limited oral evaluation-problem focused instead of CDT code D0190 – Screening of a Patient when billing the dental component of the multi-disciplinary examination (MDE). There will be a newer code added to the fee schedule for this purpose and the code will be included in a future policy transmittal on Multi-Disciplinary Examinations (MDEs).

For additional guidance on billing the various components of the MDE, please refer to provider bulletins, PB 17-68 Updated Coding Guidelines for the Behavioral/Developmental Component of Multi-Disciplinary Examinations and PB 19-14 Updated Guidance Regarding Multi-Disciplinary Examinations.
