Cross Code

Medical CPT Codes can be cross coded to dental Procedure Codes. Then, when a Medical Claim is created for the procedure, the Medical code is used on the claim instead of the dental code. Cross coding does not affect what shows on EHR Continuity of Care Document ( CCD ).

Medical codes can be added one at a time (Add Procedure Code) or using the Code Import Tool. As you add the codes, optionally set the Category to Medical Code. If that category doesn't exist, you can add it in Definitions: Proc Code Categories.

In Procedure Codes, double click the new medical code to open the Procedure Code.

Leave the Medical Code field blank.

In the Procedure Code List, double click the dental procedure code.

Enter the medical code (CPT code) in the Medical Code field to complete the cross coding.
