There are new medical dental codes for patients with sjogrens. How do I find a dentist that can bill my medical insurance with proper codes? Or is it just an oral dentist that can use medical dental codes?

Hi Guest!

Here are the currently available ICD-10 diagnosis codes for Sjögren syndrome, and yes some of these are new!

M35.00 - Sjögren syndrome, unspecified
M35.01 - Sjögren syndrome with keratoconjunctivitis
M35.02 - Sjögren syndrome with lung involvement
M35.03 - Sjögren syndrome with myopathy
M35.04 - Sjögren syndrome with tubulo-interstitial nephropathy
M35.05 - Sjögren syndrome with inflammatory arthritis
M35.06 - Sjögren syndrome with peripheral nervous system involvement
M35.07 - Sjögren syndrome with central nervous system involvement
M35.08 - Sjögren syndrome with gastrointestinal involvement
M35.0A - Sjögren syndrome with glomerular disease
M35.0B - Sjögren syndrome with vasculitis
M35.0C - Sjögren syndrome with dental involvement
M35.09 - Sjögren syndrome with other organ involvement

As for finding a dental practice who works with medical insurance - yes any dental practice *can*, however not all do work with medical insurance. We are happy to supply you with contact information for practices nearest you who work with medical insurers that we are aware of if you'd like to shoot us a message to contactus@dentalwriter.com and supply your zip code.

Hope this helps!
