Because reimbursement for dentists and their teams is such a challenge, methods are being developed to help them collect what is owed to their practices more easily.
Dental insurance continues to be difficult for dentists and their office teams to navigate. Dealing with traditional dental insurance is becoming only more complex, with endless time dedicated to paperwork, back and forth communications, and other manual tasks that increasingly distract your team from patient care.
Chasing down reimbursements; understanding the intricacies of exclusions, waiting periods, and preapprovals; submitting appropriate documentation; and filing claims for reimbursement are just a few of the many responsibilities required for each patient visit. As cumbersome as these processes are, if any are not attended to, your office runs the risk of not being compensated for its services.
