I posted a question a while back, but I can’t find where it was answered. Do we usually get notified in an e-mail?
Here is the question:
If a child has tooth E extracted (D7140) and a supernumerary tooth is found and extracted as well (this is given the title SE (supernumerary tooth E) how do I code out for the supernumerary tooth?
It was a “REMOVAL OF IMPACTED TOOTH-COMPLETELY BONY D7240, but is this the correct code for a supernumerary tooth?
All answered questions are delivered via e-mail and stored in the FAQ database...
The supernumerary tooth is coded using D7240 and noted in the remarks area of the claim form as a supernumerary tooth. You will further add an S to the tooth number area.
