“Recent Changes in Insurance Plans, Codes and Laws Each State has passed to Protect Your Office”
Dental codes change every year, but I still see the same codes being used from 1988. Look at your appointment book and look at the codes for each visit. Same codes used daily cannot be okay, since there are different patients coming into your office with unique needs and wants. Have you contacted the ADA to read over your contracts?
Do you know where they are? Without knowing what is in them fighting a claim is useless. Get them updated.
This course will allow you to understand the different additional codes all the major plans offer for wellness.
Example: Cigna has a wellness program, it pays for additional visits for patients with diabetes, kidney issues and other systemic issues.
Did you know that patients who had Covid are dealing with issues, since it started in the oral cavity?
How about the patients, who are wearing masks for hours a day, they now call that mask mouth, which is causing decay and periodontal issues?
What you will learn:
- All the plans that offer the benefits for patients with a medical history
- Collaborate with medical doctors to obtain more referrals.
- The codes that should be used with the update hygiene program that is staging and grading.
- Do you know that the ADA has put out diagnostic codes in theirbooks?
- Learn why the ADA has added a new credential to the specialty list.
