Dentrix includes a medical insurance cross-coding system that allows you to quickly bill both medical and dental carriers for the same procedures. The medical insurance feature gives you the flexibility to flag certain dental procedures as billable to medical insurance and cross-reference the ADA code with the appropriate AMA-CPT, ICD-10, modifier and service codes.
The medical cross coding system allows you to cross-reference an ADA code with the corresponding medical codes. In addition, you can cross-reference the ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM diagnostic codes with the corresponding AMA CPT code from the Medical Cross Coding Setup utility.
