Dominion National Offering Teledentistry Coverage in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
Arlington, Va. – Dominion National, a leading dental insurer and administrator of dental and vision benefits headquartered in Arlington, Va., announced that it is covering benefits for teledentistry in response to COVID-19.
Benefits allowed include consultation for limited and problem-focused evaluation and re-evaluation (CDT codes: D0140, D0170 and D0171). Dominion will also allow benefits for a physician consultation (D9311) via teledentistry.
Additionally, Dominion is waiving frequency limits and these evaluations will not count toward a member’s annual frequency limitations until further notice. This will be reviewed periodically and updated as needed.
“An increasing number of states and dental practices are following the American Dental Association’s recommendation and restricting dental visits to emergency treatment. Teledentistry provides a great alternative for patients to receive virtual consultations and Dominion is in a position to accommodate our members and providers who can leverage this innovative care delivery model,” said President Mike Davis. “We wish everyone and their family good health and safety as we collectively persevere through the coronavirus pandemic.”
