Monitoring the coronavirus
The health and well-being of our members are our top priorities. We’re doing everything we can to prepare for the impact of the virus and to ensure our members get the care they need.
We are committed to helping you provide care to patients during this public health crisis. Horizon BCBSNJ continues to monitor the American Dental Association guidelines, and local, state and federal guidance related to COVID-19.
We want to provide further guidance related to the codes for teledentistry. As of March 15, 2020, Horizon BCBSNJ will reimburse CDT codes 0140 and 0170 without any frequency limitations when submitted on a claim for the same date of service as the teledentistry codes D9995/D9996. Through May 15, 2020, unless extended, the frequency is no longer limited to once every six months.
When CDT codes 0140 and 0170 are submitted without the teledentistry codes D9995/D9996, Horizon BCBSNJ will apply frequency limitations and exclusions per the member’s benefits.
If you have questions related to these services and/or how to submit appropriately, please refer to the ADA guidelines at ADA.org.
For questions related to a member’s benefits, please call 1-800-4DENTAL (1-800-433-6825). Self-insured health plans are responsible for the specific plan designs they choose to offer to their employees, and we will continue to work with them to administer their plan designs as directed.
As we continue to monitor the rapid pace of change in the dental and health benefits marketplace, you have our commitment to keep you informed.
