On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Coding Edition with Teresa Duncan, MS Teresa gives us a breakdown of code D9993 which is part of the suite of dental case management codes. D9993 specifically relates to motivational interviewing, a very helpful skill to possess in the op!
“Motivational Interviewing is patient centered, personalized counseling using methods such as motivational interviewing to identify and modify behaviors interfering with positive oral health outcomes.”
