Pulp vitality tests are to be used when the vitality of the tooth is in question. The Department does not consider these tests as routine procedures and the member’s record must document the signs and symptoms that contributed to the questioning of the tooth’s vitality. E. Diagnostic cast models must be of good diagnostic quality and properly related in occlusion by either trimming the heels of each model flush or by an accurate bite registration submitted to the Department. 25.03-2 Preventive Services are reimbursable for eligible members under the age of twenty- one (21) and members of any age residing in an ICF-MR and are subject to the restrictions in Chapters II and III, Section 25.

If performed, it would be included as part of the exam, or included in oral hygiene instructions and is not separately billable. 2. Prior approval for prophylaxis more frequently than once every six months may be requested for members who are significantly physically or mentally handicapped, such that routine preventive home care is impossible as a result of the handicapping condition. Prophylaxis more frequently than twice a year may also be requested for those members who exhibit a repetitively high caries rate or when significant medical conditions other than physical or mental handicaps exist which make the member more susceptible to dental disease. B. Topical fluoride treatment is reimbursable no more frequently than twice per year except in those cases where a high caries rate indicates that more frequent applications would be valuable (e.g., additional applications of topical fluoride are allowed when a child has current decay or has had new restorations placed in the previous eighteen (18) months). C. Pit and fissure sealants are reimbursable for permanent teeth, once every three (3) years per member per provider, and once per lifetime for deciduous (baby) teeth. D.

Oral hygiene instruction must include disclosure of plaque, hands-on training in plaque removal and education on the etiology of dental disease. F. Behavior management of the member is critical to providing successful dental treatment. In some cases it may take several visits to establish a relationship that will allow delivery of appropriate care. Establishing that relationship may negate the necessity for more costly interventions (i.e., general anesthesia, utilization of a specialist). The Department will reimburse up to three (3) visits per general dentist to gain the trust and cooperation of the member. 6

A. Limited and Interceptive Orthodontics (not comprehensive) 1. Limited: According to the American Dental Association’s Current Dental Terminology publication (CDT-5), limited orthodontic services entails treatment with a limited objective, not involving the entire dentition. Providers may direct treatment only at the existing problem, or at only one (1) aspect of a larger problem in which a decision is made to defer or forego more comprehensive therapy. Examples of this would be treatment in one (1) arch only to correct crowding, partial treatment to open spaces or upright a tooth for a bridge or implant and partial treatment for closure of a space(s). 2. Interceptive: According to the American Dental Association’s Current Dental Terminology publication (CDT-5), interceptive orthodontic treatment is indicated for procedures to lessen the severity or future effects of a malformation, eliminate its cause, and may include localized tooth movement. Such treatment may occur in the primary or transitional dentition and may include such procedures as the redirection of ectopically erupting teeth, correction of isolated dental crossbite or recovery of recent minor space loss where overall space is adequate. The Department considers successful interception to be intervention in the incipient stages of a developing problem to lessen the severity of the malformation and eliminate its cause. Complicating factors such as skeletal disharmonies, overall space deficiency, or other conditions may require future comprehensive therapy. Both limited and interceptive orthodontics require prior authorization. Prior approval for interceptive orthodontics is not considered approval for comprehensive orthodontics in a two-phase plan. If a second phase is anticipated after treatment has begun, submission of a completed Handicapping Labiolingual Deviation (HLD) Index Report (see Appendix II for copy of form) is mandatory. In the event that less than eighteen (18) months have elapsed between the last treatment of interceptive orthodontics and the commencement of an approved comprehensive plan, the reimbursement received for the interceptive plan will be deducted 18
  • 10-144 Chapter 101 MAINECARE BENEFITS MANUAL CHAPTER IISection 25 DENTAL SERVICES Established: 9/1/86 Last Updated: 1/1/10 from the reimbursement for the comprehensive plan. In the event that eighteen (18) months or more have elapsed between the two approved plans, the provider will be reimbursed independently for the comprehensive treatment plan. Providers requesting approval for comprehensive orthodontics after a period of interceptive treatment25.03 COVERED SERVICES (cont.) should indicate the last date of active interceptive treatment on the HLD Index Report. 3. Prior approval for limited and interceptive orthodontics does not require the submission of an HLD Index Report, however, requests must include: a. a description of the problem; b. a description of the appliance; c. a treatment plan for this problem including the number of treatments and total visits; d. the provider’s usual and customary fee; e. the submission of models; and f. panoramic films (upon Department request only). 4. Reimbursement for limited and interceptive orthodontics: a. Reimbursement is available for fixed or removable appliance therapy and is based on the type of appliance and treatment plan up to the maximum allowance. The one-time reimbursement for both limited and interceptive orthodontics includes the appliance, the placement of the appliance, all active treatment visits, and all the follow-up visits even if the member becomes ineligible or reaches age twenty-one (21). The Department does not allow additional or separate reimbursement for this procedure. b. When a retainer is lost or broken beyond repair, by a member who is still within an approved retention phase of a limited orthodontic treatment, the Department will reimburse the provider the adjusted acquisition cost of the appliance and an additional fee to cover the cost of the impression and bite registration materials. 19

A provider who normally utilizes an “in house” laboratory for the fabrication of custom-made appliances may submit a statement of the cost of the appliance in lieu of the laboratory invoice noted above. The Department shall reimburse such providers in accordance with the prices of established orthodontic laboratories. B. Comprehensive Orthodontics Comprehensive orthodontics is a covered service only after the Department has granted prior approval. A condition must be extreme, and if left untreated, would become an acute dental problem and/or cause irreversible damage to the teeth or supporting structures. The MaineCare Handicapping Labiolingual Deviation (HLD) Index Report (Appendix II) is to be utilized by dentists to determine the extent of the malocclusion. 1. Orthodontic Consultation/Evaluation a. When an eligible member is determined to possess a malocclusion, the attending dentist must fill in the HLD Index Report. b. When a member scores less than twenty-six (26) points, the attending dentist must determine if there are other conditions present, such as clefts, occlusal interferences, functional jaw limitations, facial asymmetry, speech impairment, severe maxillary, mandibular, or bi-maxillary protrusion, or other physical deviations. The attending dentist must also identify in his or her opinion, whether there are any indications of potential impairment of mood and/or conduct that may result from emotional distress related to the malocclusion. Such determination(s) must be indicated on the HLD Index Report. The Attending dentist must submit the completed HLD report along with all other additional information listed in 25.03-8(B)(1)(d) of this section to the Department for a determination of malocclusion with additional number of deviations. The number and severity of these deviations will be considered 20
  • 10-144 Chapter 101 MAINECARE BENEFITS MANUAL CHAPTER IISection 25 DENTAL SERVICES Established: 9/1/86 Last Updated: 1/1/10 when the determination of an extreme condition is made. Prior to making such determination, the Department may obtain additional information from other professionals and/or request that further evaluation is done. If a question of impairment of mood and/or conduct as a result of emotional distress has been raised, the Department25.03 COVERED SERVICES (cont.) shall ask an outside provider that specializes in this field whether impairment exists; what is its nature and severity; how, if at all, it relates to the malocclusion; and whether treatment of the malocclusion is likely to alleviate the impairment. c. If no other conditions exist and the member scores less than twenty-six (26) points on the HLD Index Report, the attending dentist must inform the member that he or she does not qualify for MaineCare coverage of orthodontic treatment. The HLD Index Report must be retained in the member’s dental record. The attending dentist may bill separately for the pre-orthodontic treatment visit (includes the completion of the HLD report) at this time. d. Prior authorization will be expedited for those HLD Index Reports that meet the qualifying criteria and indicate the presence of cleft palate deformities, a deep impinging overbite, individual anterior teeth crossbite, severe traumatic deviations or an overjet greater than nine (9) millimeters. When a member scores twenty-six (26) or more points on the HLD report (or there are other conditions as noted above), the attending dentist must submit the following information for prior authorization: (1) Handicapping Labiolingual Deviation Index Report; (2) the diagnosis; (3) a panoramic x-ray (when indicated) and cephalometric radiographs with a tracing (when orthognathic surgery is anticipated); (4) diagnostic casts; (5) the preparation of a written comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan including the appliances to be utilized, records, number of visits and the length of retention necessary; 21

The professional reviewer at the Office of MaineCare Services will examine the HLD Index Report for accuracy and completeness. The professional reviewer will do one of the following: (1) return the form to the dentist for additional information; or (2) authorize the orthodontic services; or (3) deny authorization for orthodontic services. f. The dentist may request separate reimbursement, without prior approval, for each of the following: the pre- orthodontic treatment visit that includes the completion of the HLD Index Report, preparation of the diagnostic casts, panoramic films (if performed), treatment plan and records. 2. Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment MaineCare will approve orthodontic treatment for all eligible MaineCare members under age twenty-one (21) that meet the Departmental guidelines. MaineCare enrolled orthodontic providers treating, or about to treat a child participating in the Division of Family Health, Children with Special Health Needs Program, must follow all requirements for orthodontic services described in this section of the MaineCare Benefits Manual for orthodontic treatment. 22

Routine dental treatment such as cleaning and restorations are not part of an orthodontic treatment plan. b. Prior authorization will be approved only for cases that have an adequate treatment plan that indicates a treatment sequence that will correct the malocclusion.25.03 COVERED SERVICES (cont.) c. Members who are under active orthodontic treatment that started prior to the member’s date of eligibility for MaineCare, and subsequently became eligible for MaineCare Dental Services under Chapter II, Section 25.02, and are less than twenty-one (21) years of age may have the completion of their orthodontic treatment covered by MaineCare. MaineCare will only cover the continued treatment if the member’s orthodontic records and pre-treatment models show that the member would have met the prior authorization criteria for the orthodontic examination and treatment. d. Comprehensive orthodontic treatment must begin within twelve (12) months after approval by the Department. Treatment will be considered to have begun with the extraction of teeth for orthodontic purposes, the placement of a major orthodontic appliance, such as fixed orthodontic brackets, palatal expanders, or other functional appliances requiring active management. Once active orthodontic treatment has begun, an all-inclusive reimbursement fee will be made for the initial appliance, placing of the brackets, all treatment visits, one appliance repair or replacement, one retainer repair or replacement. Rebonding or recementing of a retainer is also considered a repair. Once active orthodontic treatment has begun, the provider must continue to cover the orthodontic treatment even if the member becomes ineligible for MaineCare. The member must continue to meet the residency requirements in the MaineCare Eligibility Manual. If treatment is stopped or suspended or the patient moves or is dismissed from a practice, the provider must notify the Office of MaineCare Services. MaineCare will pro-rate, on a case by case basis, the amount the provider will be required to reimburse the Department based on the start date of the orthodontia treatment and the actual services and visits that have been completed. 3.

This all-inclusive payment includes the comprehensive orthodontic treatment (placement of appliances), all treatment visits, one appliance repair or replacement, one retainer repair or replacement. Rebonding or recementing of a retainer is also considered a repair. The provider must indicate in the member’s record the date of the first appliance and retainer repair or replacement. Subsequent repairs and replacements are separately billable and must be documented in the member’s record. c. Reimbursement for de-banding for members currently receiving orthodontic care under an approved treatment plan is included in the all-inclusive payment for orthodontic services and is not separately reimbursable. Separate reimbursement is available for members under twenty-one (21) who are not currently receiving orthodontic care under an approved treatment plan. Reimbursement is available per dental arch. d. Retainer checkups are part of the orthodontic package and reimbursement is included in the all-inclusive payment for orthodontia services. e.

Requests for prior authorization will be considered for dentures or other appropriate dental services only if one or more of the following criteria are met: A. Members with dysphagia, aspiration or other choking-risk conditions will qualify for dentures or other appropriate medically necessary dental care if: 1. the condition is not amenable to, or is not suitable for corrective surgery or medical treatment; 2. a swallowing study or speech therapy evaluation documenting the aspiration or choking risk is submitted; and 3. the treating physician, in consultation with the member’s dentist, states that their condition is most cost-effectively treated by dentures or other specified appropriate and medically necessary dental25.04 COVERED SERVICES FOR ADULTS (cont) services. An example would be a recurrent esophageal stricture, not responsive to endoscopic dilations with episodes of obstruction. B. Members with the following medical conditions will qualify for dentures or other appropriate medically necessary dental care if the services are cost effective compared to other MaineCare covered services: 1. Members who have an underlying medical condition, e.g. uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. The Department requires current documentation to substantiate that uncontrolled diabetes may be appropriately treated adjunctively with the use of dentures. Documentation must include all of the following: a. HgbA1c of > eight percent (8%) on at least two (2) occasions at least six (6) months apart; b. documentation of at least two (2) dietary counseling sessions with a dietician regarding an edentulous diet; and c. participation in an ADEF (Ambulatory Diabetes Education and Follow-up) program within the last year, or between the two (2) HgbA1c measurements. 2. Members with a medical condition causing documented, inappropriate weight loss of greater than ten percent (10%) of body weight within the last twelve (12) months or less that will be corrected or improved by the provision of medically necessary dental services, including full and partial dentures. Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD), being overweight, morbidly obese, or being at risk for coronary artery disease are examples of diagnoses that do 30

Treating these conditions with dentures has not been shown to be a more effective treatment than other means. The Department may require a trial period of other cost effective means before dentures are approved for treatment of an underlying medical condition. C. Members whose behavior secondary to dental pain or the psychological complications of being edentulous are causing current, severe medical or psychiatric complications, (e.g. debilitating psychiatric illness or physical harm), as documented by a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, would qualify for necessary dental services under this Subsection. D.The Department may waive the criterion of being edentulous in cases where extenuating medical circumstances exist. These circumstances must clearly25.04 COVERED SERVICES FOR ADULTS (cont) substantiate the medical necessity that immediate placement of dentures is necessary for the member’s health due to a serious medical condition. Examples of this may be a member who is scheduled to have organ transplant surgery, chemotherapy in the near future, has had extreme (>20%) weight loss within the last twelve (12) months or less and has an underlying medical condition such as advanced HIV disease or uncontrolled Crohn’s disease. E. Members with dentures who require replacement dentures and whose dentures are medically necessary to correct or ameliorate an underlying medical condition, and for whom the Department determines that the provision of those dentures will be cost effective in comparison to the provision of other covered medical services for the treatment of that condition.25.05 NON-COVERED SERVICES A. The Department does not allow reimbursement for any member in an ICF-MR for orthodontics, orthognathic surgery, or repair of cleft palate procedures except in those cases where said treatment is being performed to correct a post-traumatic or post-surgical disfigurement, or in those cases where these services are a continuation of ongoing treatment started before age twenty-one (21).

  • APPENDIX I MAINECARE HANDICAPPING LABIOLINGUAL DEVIATION INDEX SCORING INSTRUCTIONSThe intent of the Handicapping Labiolingual Deviation (HLD) Index is to measure the presence or absence and the degree of thehandicap caused by the components of the Index and not to diagnose “malocclusion.” All measurements are made with a BoleyGauge (or a disposable ruler) scaled in millimeters. Absence of any conditions must be recorded by entering “0” (refer toattached score sheet).The following information helps to clarify the categories on the HLD Index Report:Cleft Palate Deformities: Indicate an “X” on the score sheet and do not score any further if present. This condition isconsidered to be a handicapping malocclusion.Deep Impinging Overbite: Indicate an “X” on the score sheet when lower incisors are destroying the soft tissue of the palateand do not score any further. This condition is considered to be a handicapping malocclusion.Individual Anterior Teeth Crossbite: Indicate an “X” on the score sheet when destruction of soft tissue is present and do notscore any further. This condition is considered to be a handicapping malocclusion.Severe Traumatic Deviations: Traumatic deviations include loss of a premaxilla segment by burns or by accident, the result ofosteomyelitis or other gross pathology. Indicate with an “X” on the score sheet, attach documentation of condition, and do notscore any further. This condition is considered to be a handicapping malocclusion.Overjet Greater than 9 mm: If the overjet is greater than 9 mm with incompetent lips or the reverse overjet (mandibularprotrusion) is greater than 3.5 mm with reported masticatory and speech difficulties, indicate an “X” and score no further. If thereverse overjet is not greater than 3.5 mm, score under the “Mandibular Protrusion in Millimeters” item.Overjet in Millimeters: This is recorded with the member’s teeth in centric occlusion and measured from the labial portion of thelower incisors to the labial of the upper incisors. The measurement may apply to a protruding single tooth as well as to the wholearch. Round this measurement to the nearest millimeter and enter on the score sheet.Overbite in Millimeters: A pencil mark on the tooth indicating the extent of overlap facilitates this measurement. Round off tothe nearest millimeter and enter on the score sheet. “Reverse” overbite may exist in certain conditions and should be measured andrecorded.Mandibular Protrusion in Millimeters: Score exactly as measured from the labial of the lower incisor to the labial of the upperincisor. The measurement in millimeters is entered on the score sheet and multiplied by five (5). A reverse overbite, if present,should be shown under “overbite.”Open Bite in Millimeters: This condition is defined as the absence of occlusal contact in the anterior region. It is measuredfrom edge to edge in millimeters. Enter the measurement on the score sheet and multiply by four (4). In cases of pronouncedprotrusion associated with open bite, measurement of the open bite is not always possible. In those cases, a close approximationcan usually be estimated.Ectopic Eruption: Count each tooth, excluding third molars. Enter the number of teeth on the score sheet and multiply by three(3). If anterior crowding is present with an ectopic eruption in the anterior portion of the mouth, score only the most severecondition. Do not score both conditions.Anterior Crowding: Arch length insufficiency must exceed 3.5 mm. Mild rotations that may react favorably to stripping ormild expansion procedures are not to be scored as crowded. Enter five (5) points each for maxillary and mandibular anteriorcrowding. If ectopic eruption is also present in the anterior portion of the mouth, score the most severe condition. Do not scoreboth conditions.Labiolingual Spread: Use a Boley Gauge or a disposable ruler to determine the extent of deviation from a formal arch. Wherethere is only a protruded or lingually displaced anterior tooth, the measurement should be made from the incisal edge of thattooth to the normal arch line. Otherwise, the total distance between the most protruded tooth and the lingually displaced anteriortooth is measured. The labiolingual spread probably comes close to a measurement of overall deviation from what would havebeen a normal arch. In the event that multiple anterior crowding of teeth is observed, all deviations from the normal arch shouldbe measured for labiolingual spread, but only the most severe individual measurement should be entered on the index.Posterior Unilateral Crossbite: This condition involves two or more adjacent teeth, one of which must be a molar. Thecrossbite must be one in which the maxillary posterior teeth involved may be both palatal and completely buccal in relation tothe mandibular posterior teeth. The presence of posterior unilateral crossbite is indicated by a score of four (4) on the scoresheet. iii

Providers will be notified of all such additions and deletions through the regular mail, by a revised Allowances for Dental Services or by revised billing instructions. Providers are requested to bill their usual and customary charge for all dental services. In accordance with policy, the MaineCare Program will continue to pay the lowest of the following: 1. The fee established by MaineCare and noted in the “Maximum Allowance” column of the fee schedule; 2. The lowest amount allowed by Medicare; or 3. The providers usual and customary charge. DEFINITIONSThe following are definitions for several terms that are frequently used throughout this publication.By Report: This notation in the Maximum Allowances column indicates that the fee for the procedure is to be determined based upon an operative report. Such a procedure would be one that is rarely provided, unusual, variable, or newly developed. Pertinent information contained in the report, which must accompany the claim, should include an adequate definition or description of the nature, extent, need for the procedure, time, effort, and equipment necessary to provide the service. Additional information, such as complexity of the symptoms, final diagnosis, pertinent physical findings, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, concurrent problems, and follow-up care may also be included. If there is a maximum amount listed, then reimbursement is not to exceed the maximum amount listed.Consultation: Consultation is an opinion rendered by a dentist whose advice is requested by another dentist or physician for the further ii

When the consulting dentists assumes responsibility for the continuing care of the patient, any subsequent service rendered by him/her will cease to be a consultation. The Department requires a written report to be sent to the requesting practitioner.Referral: A referral is the transfer of the total or specific care of a patient from one dentist to another and does not constitute a consultation. MODIFIERSFor modifier usage, please see the most current dental billing instructions supplied by the Office of MaineCare Services. ELEMENTS OF HCPCS/CDT CODINGCodes for services are arranged in tabular form. Specific information regarding each code is given under the following headings:1. Procedure code: The actual CDT procedure code will be listed in this column.2. CDT Description: The narrative description of the procedure code will be listed in this column.3. Covered Service: This column identifies whether a particular service is covered under the MaineCare program, indicated by a "YES," or not covered, indicated by a "NO." It is further divided into two (2) sub columns indicating services for those under 21 and all ICF-MR residents (with the exception of orthodontics which is not covered for residents of an ICF- MR) and the second column, indicating coverage for adults 21 and over when allowed under Section 25, Dental Services, of the MaineCare Benefits Manual, Chapter II, 25.04, Special Requirements for Adult Services.4. Prior Authorization Some procedures require authorization prior to the performance of a service in order for MaineCare to Required: allow reimbursement. If prior authorization is required, it will be indicated by the message "YES" in these columns.

Again this column is subdivided into requirements for the same two populations as column 3.5. Additional Limits: This column lists any additional limitations affecting reimbursement for services. Examples include reimbursement frequency or the passage of time required before further reimbursement. This column is intended to parallel restrictions also described in Section 25, Dental Services, of the MaineCare Benefits Manual, Chapter II. Codes also allowed for denturists and hygienists will be indicated in this column. If reimbursement is not available for a particular procedure "Not covered" will be listed in this column. MaineCare will not reimburse for non-covered services. Providers may bill members for non-covered services only if, prior to the provision of the service, the provider has clearly explained to the member that MaineCare does not cover the service and that the member will be responsible for the payment. Providers must document in the member’s record that the member was told, prior to provision, that the service was not a MaineCare covered service and that the member is responsible for the payment.6. Maximum Allowance: This column will show the maximum reimbursement that MaineCare will allow for a particular procedure. MaineCare will pay the lowest of this allowance, or the dentists/denturist’s usual and customary fee, or the lowest amount allowed by Medicare.Some procedures are manually priced, or priced using a specific report for the service rendered. If a service is priced this way, the message "BYREPORT" will appear in the Maximum Allowance column. All BY REPORT codes suspend for a review, which interrupts the automatic claimsprocessing and slows payment to the provider. A complete report must accompany any claim using a BY REPORT code. Please note thatoccasionally a description will include the term “by report.” Such a designation is part of the code description and does not indicate how MaineCarewill reimburse the procedure.Every effort should be made to utilize the correct code. Billing should be done in accordance with the CDT guidelines and Chapter II and Chapter III,Section 25. iv
