Dental implant procedures may be eligible for reimbursement, only when they meet threshold of medical necessity, for instance, when provided to resolve a compromised ability to chew. While few dental policies classify an implant as a cosmetic procedure, some dental plans cover surgical and restorative aspects of dental implants. Comprehensive dental insurance verification services are crucial before consultation for dental practices to minimize claim denials. While submitting claims, dental offices should include the right CDT codes and dental ICD-10 diagnostic codes, to maximize their reimbursement.
