Offices in England can report the number of appointments with aerosol generating procedures (AGPs) when filing NHS dental claims, in compliance with the NHS CCN 42 regulation. Beginning 1 August 2020, the Clinical Data Set/DMF section of the NHS Claim window includes a new AGP (no of appts) field.
To report aerosol generating procedures:
- Select NHS Claims > Claims Management.
- Select a claim.
Note: Claim must have an Acceptance Date of or after 1 August 2020.
- From the NHS Claim window, you can select to override the automatically generated claim values and assign the number of appointments involving AGPs.
Example: If the course of treatment included a series of two appointments involving three fillings and a crown, then a value of 2 should be entered.
