Hi, Does d9248 Conscious Sedation have a CPT code? Does it require an ICD 10 code?

What is the ICD 10 for d7210- failed root canal with absecess, infection and small tooth fracture?

Hi Guest!

D9248 - non-intravenous conscious sedation
For patients 5+ years old, can be cross coded to:
99152
Moderate sedation services provided by the same physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports, requiring the presence of an independent trained observer to assist in the monitoring of the patient’s level of consciousness and physiological status; initial 15 minutes of intraservice time, patient age 5 years or older
99153
Moderate sedation services provided by the same physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports, requiring the presence of an independent trained observer to assist in the monitoring of the patient’s level of consciousness and physiological status; each additional 15 minutes intraservice time (list separately in addition to code for primary service)


And yes, every medical claim requires at least 1 ICD-10 diagnosis code.

Here are some diagnosis coding options for the condition you mentioned:

K12.2 - Cellulitis and abscess of mouth
K03.81 - Cracked tooth
S02.5XXA - Fracture of tooth (traumatic), initial encounter for closed fracture
S02.5XXB - Fracture of tooth (traumatic), initial encounter for open fracture


Hope this helps!
