The Difficulties with Health Insurance and Dental Insurance.

Example

General anesthesia or IV sedation is a necessity with some patients in order to provide adequate care.  The anxiety associated with extractions can be debilitating.  This type of severe anxiety with oral health care can commonly be traced back to a childhood experience that was stressful or even painful.  Dr. Johnson believes providing sedation essential for some patients.  However, your insurance carrier can think different.  Below you will find a United Health Care Dental denial for a patient who required extraction of 4 third molars (wisdom teeth) with deep sedation (CPT Code D9220).  In the middle of the page the reason for the sedation denial states “local anesthesia is expected to provide adequate pain control for procedure submitted”.  The dental insurance companies have dictated the care that is appropriate.  Certainly “numbing” the area will provide pain control but does little to reduce anxiety allowing Dr. Johnson to provide an environment for the patient to seek out the needed oral health care.  If the patient had known that the insurance company would not be providing coverage for sedation he/she may have forgone the procedure until swelling or pain became excessive.  In many cases patients will seek care in a local ER, greatly increasing the cost to society.
