Basic Medical Billing in the Dental Practice

Speaker: Chris Farrugia, DDS

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Dental practices are filled with patients that pay monthly premiums for medical insurance policies. These policies have benefits available for services commonly rendered in dental practices across the country. Accessing medical benefits only requires the dental office to step out of their “dentocentric” view of their practice and into a medical view. In this course, dental practices will learn to separate the medical portion of their services from the dental, identify when to file for medically necessary services, and the basics of medical claim creation, submission and documentation.

The dentist plays a vital role in the claims process—attendance is HIGHLY encouraged.  All team members, from the front office to the clinical care team, will benefit from this engaging presentation. As patients grow to understand that medical insurance also covers some of the services you render, you and your team can become leaders in medical billing while also increasing case acceptance and improving the practice bottom line.
