Description

Insurance Administration errors are predictable in today’s dental practice. Learn the top administration errors – and how not to make them! You will also receive new, valuable information on some of the nuances of insurance administration, which you can use to identify and “fix” problems that lurk in your practice. Most practices can expect legitimate net increases in cash flow immediately by learning how to administer insurance correctly.

Based on several thousand dental practices studied, these common problems were identified:
• Consistent Administration Errors
• Administration Protocol Issues
• Potentially Fraudulent Activities

Dealing with dental insurance is overwhelming but key strategies can save you time, prevent hassles, and keep you out of jail. You will receive essential tools to properly submit dental insurance claims, and calculate primary and secondary insurance patient responsibility and provider write-off. In addition, co-pay forgiveness, discounting, 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!
