If your patient is suffering from certain health conditions or has certain symptoms, then you need to consider medical billing. Dental carriers require that any service that COULD be payable by any medical carrier, including Medicare; be submitted to the medical insurance first. Dental offices who have NEVER had to consider billing medical insurance are faced with the prospect of either being able to bill medical (correctly) or telling their patients that they will not assist them in getting the benefits, and possibly care, they deserve. 


When Should You Bill Medical? 

Knowing which procedures are most likely to be paid by medical coverage will save a practice valuable time and resources. Learn which procedures should be submitted to medical insurance. Finally understand policy provisions, preauthorizations, and what you must ask your patients. Transitioning to medical billing requires a new awareness, additional training, enhanced documentation, and a certain level of patience while these changes impact your practice. 


Medical Cross-Coding for the Dental Office

CDT codes are not widely recognized in medical insurance. Some dental codes will have applicable medical codes while others may not have a medical code. Learn common cross-codes and what to do when one doesn't exist. Learn how to decide which office visit code to choose. We will teach you how to select the correct level office visit code. If you haven't been billing (or getting paid) for your office visits, we'll explain what you need to be doing. Learn how modifiers can affect your payment and when they are necessary. Exposure to codes, definitions and their usage is imperative for successful claim submissions. We will ensure that you have the information you need so your claims are not rejected due to incorrect coding and/or lack of medical necessity.


Diagnosis Coding for the Dental Office

Diagnosis coding is a new concept to the dental office that has never filed a medical claim. All medical claims require a diagnosis code which must be established by the provider. The diagnosis code is based upon the patient’s medical condition, not the procedure being performed. Claims are paid or denied based upon a medical condition and medical necessity. Becoming familiar with ICD-10 codes is imperative for dental providers who must bill medical. Learn how to accurately select your patients' diagnoses and ensure you are showing medical necessity with your ICD-10 coding.


CMS-1500 Claim Form Step-by-Step Instructions

You will have an opportunity to practice completing the form during the series. We will teach you what you need to know to complete the CMS-1500 claim form correctly. If you have had to deal with rejected claims, mistakes that have delayed the processing and payment of claims, or even patients being told that you are submitting things incorrectly; you are not alone! Learn how to bill successfully! Become more efficient and effective!
