Description

The dental team is faced with a growing number of reasons to communicate with patients concerning their medical health care coverage. Changes in our health care system have resulted in a growing trend of dentists being asked to submit dental procedures to a patient’s medical plan. This course will provide the participant with the knowledge necessary to successfully submit a medical claim. Dental procedures commonly submitted to medical will be addressed.
