Need to have a tooth extracted and bone graft done. Code is D7953. Medicare does not covert cosmetic dental procedures, but this isn't cosmetic. The toot is decaying at the gum under a crown and is liable to break off. Can/is this covered under medicare if an oral surgeon does it?

Thanks.

I chatted with Medicare, they said it was covered. I call the oral surgeon, they said it wasn't. Called medicare and all an agent did was read the verbiage off their web site to me. Said it was listed as covered, but no amount was listed. Chatted with medicare again and was told listed, but the covered amount was $0. Clear as mud! Brian
