Apple Health (Medicaid) Provider Alert

Technical issues with new current dental terminology codes D9222 and D9223 resulted in a zero payment for these procedures:

  • D9222 deep sedation/general anesthesia – first 15 minutes
  • D9223 deep sedation/general anesthesia – 15-minute increments

The agency has resolved the problem and affected providers will see the correction on the next Remittance Advice (RA).

Providers do not need to rebill.
