Hi Guest!

So sorry about that, typo on my end!!

D2740 - crown - porcelain/ceramic substrate

There are not direct crosscodes we are aware of for crowns, so you can either use 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!

Hello,

I am actually looking for D2740 - cermaic crowns due to recurrent decay

Is there a cross over coding for it?

Thank you so much ahead of time!

Hi Guest!

D7240 - Removal of impacted tooth - completely bony

As for the CPT code for extractions, there is actually not direct crosscodes we are aware of, 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!

Hi Guest!

For the conscious sedation, as long as the patient is over 5 years of age and the same provider who performed the extractions adminstered the sedation, here are the crosscodes below (if the patient was under 5 or if sedation performed by a different provider, let me know and I am happy to provide you those codes):

D9239 - Intravenous moderate (conscious) sedation/anesthesia – first 15 minutes
D9243 - Intravenous moderate (conscious) sedation/analgesia – each 15 minute increment
can be crosscoded 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

and

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)


D7240 - Removal of impacted tooth - completely bony
D7230- Removal of impacted tooth - partially bony
D7220 - Removal of Impacted tooth, soft tissue
D7110 - extraction - single tooth

As for the CPT code for extractions, there is actually not direct crosscodes we are aware of, 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!

Hi Guest!

The diagnosis code(s) will depend on the patient's condition/symptoms - so in other words, why is the patient receiving the services?

For example, you may consider:

Z01.20 - Encounter for dental examination and cleaning without abnormal findings
Z01.21 - Encounter for dental examination and cleaning with abnormal findings
K02.3 - Arrested dental caries
K02.51 - Dental caries on pit and fissure surface limited to enamel
K02.52 - Dental caries on pit and fissure surface penetrating into dentin
K02.53 - Dental caries on pit and fissure surface penetrating into pulp
K02.61 - Dental caries on smooth surface limited to enamel
K02.62 - Dental caries on smooth surface penetrating into dentin
K02.63 - Dental caries on smooth surface penetrating into pulp
K02.7 - Dental root caries
K02.9 - Dental caries, unspecified
K03.89 - Other specified diseases of hard tissues of teeth
K04.1 - Necrosis of pulp
K04.2 - Pulp degeneration
K04.01 - Reversible pulpitis
K04.02 - Irreversible pulpitis
K05.211 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, slight
K05.212 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, moderate
K05.213 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, severe
K05.219 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, unspecified severity
K05.221 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, slight
K05.222 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, moderate
K05.223 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, severe
K05.229 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, unspecified severity
K05.311 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, slight
K05.312 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, moderate
K05.313 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, severe
K05.319 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, unspecified severity
K05.321 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, slight
K05.322 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, moderate
K05.323 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, severe
K05.329 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, unspecified severity
K05.10 - Chronic gingivitis, plaque induced
K05.11 - Chronic gingivitis, non-plaque induced
K08.89 - Other specified disorders of teeth and supporting structures


If you have additional details about the patient's condition, i'm happy to offer you some coding options.

Hope this helps!

D0120 - periodic oral evaluation - established patient
can be crosscoded to:

99211 - Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, that may not require the presence of a physician or other qualified health care professional. Usually, the presenting problem(s) are minimal. Typically, 5 minutes are spent performing or supervising these services.

99212 - Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, which requires at least 2 of these 3 key components: A problem focused history; A problem focused examination; Straightforward medical decision making. Counseling and/or coordination of care with other physicians, other qualified health care professionals, or agencies are provided consistent with the nature of the problem(s) and the patient's and/or family's needs. Usually, the presenting problem(s) are self limited or minor. Typically, 10 minutes are spent face-to-face with the patient and/or family.


D1110 - prophylaxis - adult

The code listed above does not have a direct crosscode we are aware of, 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 try the CPT code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures


Hope this helps!



What will be the appropriate diagnostic code for D1110?
Thank you!
