We need to submit the bill for the medical insurance,want to make sure the appropriate code for the D9222 and D9223. We have oral surgeon in the office and does all the impacted wisdom teeth removal surgeries under deep sedation.He does all this by himself so we don't have to take the help form the Anesthesiologist.I need help with the D9222 and d9223 and modifier code if it's needed.

Hi Guest!

No problem:

D9222 – deep sedation/general anesthesia – first 15 minutes
D9223 – deep sedation/general anesthesia – each additional 15 minutes
can be crosscoded to:
00170 - Anesthesia for intraoral procedures, including biopsy; not otherwise specified

There is not a standard modifier I am aware of to use for the situation you're describing. If the insurer requires one, you may consider:
QS - Monitored anesthesia care service


Hope this help!

Hi Guest,

In addition, if you are looking for someone to do your medical billing for your office, we do have MBS - a medical billing service here at Nierman Practice Management. If you'd like to provide me with your email, I'd be happy to email you information about that as well.

I hope this answers your question!

Can the D-codes be used in a Hospital facility. We have special needs patients that sedation is requested by the Dentist there, and wanted to make sure they were not just in office usable codes?

Hi Guest!

Yes is some cases the "D" code can be used, but if there is a direct CPT crosscode available is it best to use it.

For sedation, there are specific CPT codes available. If it is deep sedation:

00170 - Anesthesia for intraoral procedures, including biopsy; not otherwise specified


If it is moderate sedation:

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)

99155
Moderate sedation services provided by a physician or other qualified health care professional other than the physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports; initial 15 minutes of intraservice time, patient younger than 5 years of age

99156
Moderate sedation services provided by a physician or other qualified health care professional other than the physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports; initial 15 minutes of intraservice time, patient age 5 years or older

99157
Moderate sedation services provided by a physician or other qualified health care professional other than the physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports; each additional 15 minutes intraservice time (list separately in addition to code for primary service)


Hope this helps!
