Submandibular duct relocation

Sarah Posted Thu 11th of June, 2020 14:08:31 PM
Good Afternoon. What CPT code would you use for this procedure? I was looking at 42500, 42505, and 42507. 42507 would fit if it stated submandibular duct not parotid. Please help. Thanks.

Hi Sarah,

 
Thanks for your question.
 
Please be informed that we do not have a CPT code for Submandibular duct relocation. So, an unlisted code 42699 (Unlisted procedure, salivary glands or ducts) should be reported.
 
Please feel free to write if you have any question.
 
Thanks.

Would the 42507 be a good comparison code?

Yes, code 42507 (Parotid duct diversion, bilateral (Wilke type procedure)) would be a good comparison code.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks.
