We have a Medicare patient that asked we submit his consultation visit to his insurance. We are providers of Medicare, so even though they don't cover dental services I submit on the patient's behalf if they want me to. We previously extracted a tooth and placed a graft to the site in anticipation of a dental implant. He then came back for a second consult to discuss the implant procedure in more detail because he became undecided on how he wanted to proceed. I see there is an ICD-10 code for a fractured dental implant or removing a dental implant, but I don't see anything regarding placing a dental implant? Any help is much appreciated!

Thank you,
Kristen

Hi Kristen!

Here are some ICD-10 coding options for you below:

M27.61 - Osseointegration failure of dental implant
M27.62 - Post-osseointegration biological failure of dental implant
M27.63 - Post-osseointegration mechanical failure of dental implant
M27.69 - Other endosseous dental implant failure

Hope this helps, have a great day!

I just wanted to let you guys know that I got my dental implants recently from LBR dental implants and they are the best and most affordable dental implants in India. I recommend everyone to try them.
