If any CDT from a Bridge Series is missing : There are guidelines made by the insurance companies based on which the claims are processed. However there can be some instances when any CDT compliance is missing. For example: If Bridge needs to be placed on tooth #3 4 5, Then tooth #4 should be a Pontic (Missing Tooth) and tooth #3 5 are the crowns or the retainer crowns. If any CDT is missed for billing, none of the services will be paid either.
So one has to be careful about the billing criteria.
