Hi,

I'm trying to convert the following dental codes into medical procedure codes so my medical insurance will cover it. I have amelogenesis imperfecta.

Thank you for your help.

7210
6010
5140
D6076
5110

Hi Guest!



D6010 - surgical placement of implant body: endosteal implant
can be cross coded to:
21248 - Reconstruction of mandible or maxilla, endosteal implant (eg, blade, cylinder); partial
21249 - Reconstruction of mandible or maxilla, endosteal implant (eg, blade, cylinder); complete


D7210 - Extraction, erupted tooth requiring removal of bone and/or sectioning of tooth, and including elevation of mucoperiosteal flap if indicated
D5140 - immediate denture - mandibular
D6076 - implant supported retainer for FPD - porcelain fused to high noble alloys
D5110 - complete denture - maxillary

Extractions, dentures & retainers do not have direct crosscode - so you can either bill the "D" code on the medical claim (many insurers these days will process "D" codes when they are medically necessary services), or you can use the CPT code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures

Hope this helps!
