I have a claim that was denied for the D7953. That tooth was extracted. Now the D7953 was denied. My question is there any code that will substitute or cross code that D7953?The code I use for the extraction is 7210

Hi Guest!

D7953 - bone replacement graft for ridge preservation - per site
Can be cross coded to:
21210 - Graft, bone; nasal, maxillary or malar areas (includes obtaining graft)
21215 - Graft, bone; mandible (includes obtaining graft)
**use modifier -52 for reduced services when bone is not obtained from patient


Hope this helps!
