Basic Medical Billing in the Dental Practice BEYOND THE BASICS

Speaker: Chris Farrugia, DDS

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Once dental practices are fundamentally sound in the claims process, medical claims may be successfully submitted for “beyond the basics” services to both commercial insurers and Medicare. Dental practices should access medical benefits for services such as:

  • Sleep Apnea Appliances (MAD and dentofacial orthopedic appliances)
  • TMD Therapy
  • Bone Grafts
  • Reconstruction surgery and Implants
  • CT Scans & much more.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

In this unique combination lecture/workshop format, participants will learn to code and create claims for many clinical scenarios. The dentist is the only one that can diagnose—therefore dentist attendance is HIGHLY encouraged along with ALL team members involved in the documentation and claims process.

Participants will:

    1. Gain confidence in the medical claim process
    2. Learn the requirements of billing to Medicare
    3. Learn how to increase claim success through the utilization of global medical policies
    4. Learn how to create workflow checklists that guarantee claim success
    5. Learn best documentation and Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) practices 
    6. Learn to diagnose, code and create claims for surgery (Wisdom teeth, Bone Grafting, and Implants), appliances (TMD, Bruxism, OSA/Sleep Apnea), trauma, and even dental restorations (i.e. crown and bridge, core build-up, endodontics)
