Description:
Dealing with dental insurance is overwhelming, but key strategies can save time, prevent hassles and keep dental professionals out of jail. Attendees will receive essential tools to properly file dental insurance claims and calculate primary and secondary insurance receipts. In addition, co-pay forgiveness, discounting, multiple fee positioning, patient gifts, falsifying NPI numbers and even PPO strategies will be discussed. Stop leaving money on the table, as PPOs dominate the marketplace — a tipping point! This course will present first some of the top coding and insurance pitfalls, as background material for panel discussion. Then the panel will discuss the presentation’s content which will include questions from the audience.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • avoid typical coding errors.
  • learn proper narratives and documentation.
  • understand co-pay forgiveness, discounting, multiple fees, etc.
  • know how to handle patient gifts, evaluate and deal with PPOs, and deal with the unclaimed property office.
