When modifying an existing denture to accommodate implants after implant surgery, we use code D5875. Our question however, is whether we should bill separately for the housing assembly portion that is imbedded in the retrofitted denture? It seems like in this case we should bill for the D5875 as well as D5862 (mini implants) or D6062 (full size implants)to cover the cost of the housings. Need your help. Thanks.

It would be appropriate to bill out separately for the housing assembly... there are 3 codes that would may be used depending on the material D5862, D5867, or D5899. Depending on the documentation provided and the actual service rendered one of the three listed would be appropriate.
