abutment L8693

Can anyone please share with me how you are billing abutment changes (after global period)? I'm leaning towards reporting 69399, L8693, 11042.

I've read online suggested reporting = 69399, 11042-51 under physician and L8693 under audiologist (due to DME).

Or should I report E/M with 11042-51 rather unlisted code for physician services? And L8693 again remains under audiologist.

Patient example:

presents with BAHA infection that is described as acute. Physician removes 9mm in length previous abutment, granulation tissue surrounding area was debrided and 14mm abutment placed.

This is not global; BAHA placed 2014.
