When providing a patient a replacement appliance, it is necessary to chart a Regulation 11.
Charting a Regulation 11
- Open the chart tab on the patient file
- Create an NHS course of treatment (COT)
- Click on the Exemptions button at the bottom of the COT
- Select Regulation 11 Replacement Appliance (EXACT will automatically put the patient charge in)
- Select OK
- Add a Replacement Appliance service for example, 3281, 3282, 3283, 3284 or 3285.
Please Note: The NHS no longer accept the Clinical Dataset 'Other', if this is assigned to any one of these services, you will need to change this before charting the service.
- Complete the treatment and TC
|Note: No other NHS treatment can be added to a Regulation 11 treatment plan.|
Incorrect Regulation 11 Fees
|Note: A Regulation 11 fee is 30% less than a Band 3 fee.|
If the fees displayed on a regulation 11 COT is incorrect, it is possible the NHS Band 3 fee is incorrect in EXACT.
To check the fe allocated to your Band 3, navigate to
File - Payor - NHS - Band Setup
Regulation 11 patient charges and activity
- The patient will pay 30% of the Band 3 charge per appliance even if they do not normally pay. Please note that upper and lower dentures are considered two appliances. In cases of undue hardship patients may apply for a refund of charges by completing a Form FP17R11.
- 12 UDAs are awarded for general appliances
- UOAs are not awarded for replacement orthodontic appliances. The orthodontist retains the patient charge and Form FP17O is submitted.
