I work with a head and neck oncology surgeon. He performs procedures best described by Current Dental Terminology codes when removing portions of the jaw for tumors. Should a non-oral surgeon bill CDT codes? Will Medicare reimburse D codes (if medically necessary, of course) billed by a surgeon with a different specialty?
