Without a thorough understanding of insurance reimbursement, today’s dental office is at a serious disadvantage. In this economy, dental professionals need to ensure that they are getting reimbursed as adequately as they can.
Insurance companies use various tactics and strategies that, unless understood, will cause unnecessary delays and rejections during claims processing.
Each office has unique insurance problems.
All offices have common insurance problems.
We will teach you how to be aware of the potential problems and offer possible solutions!
