  1. Arrow Code for Removable TMJ Splint

    Hi Wendy, Are you using the modifier KX? I went to the MCR website to obtain the information, I hope this helps.

    I did find this information, but again it is not on the fee sked.
    D7997 Removal of appliance. I would recommend calling your Jurisdiction office and ask them how they want the procedure coded. Or call the PDAC. Sry couldn't be more help.
