Hi guest!

D2740 = crown - porcelain/ceramic substrate

There is not a specific CPT code that represent this procedure, so you can either file D2740 on the medical claim, or if the BCBS you are filing to does not process "D" codes (many medical insurers do process "D" codes these days), you can use a miscellaneous CPT code and include a narrative report to describe the procedure, such as:

41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures

Hope this helps!

Hi guest!

D7220 - removal of impacted tooth - soft tissue
D7230 - removal of impacted tooth - partially bony

The codes listed above do not have 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 try one of the CPT codes below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures


D7951
- sinus augmentation with bone or bone substitutes via a lateral open approach
can be crosscoded to:
21210 - graft, bone; nasal, maxillary, or malar areas
*use -52 modifier for reduced services when bone is not obtained from the patient
or

Does anyone know of a Prosthodontist that will bill to a medical provider in Florida? I have been able to get my daughters Implants covered by my insurance BCBS but I can't find anyone for her restorative work that will bill to medical.

Thanks,

Charlie
