Tips for Successful Dental Billing

1. VERIFY INSURANCE COVERAGE

When a new patient calls for an appointment, collect their information and offer to verify their insurance coverage and benefits. Doing this prior to treating the patient is the best practice.

2. PROCESS CLAIMS DAILY

Processing claims daily ensures a consistent cash flow for your dental practice. Choose to send your claims and supporting documents to insurances electronically for faster results.

3. CHECK ACCURACY OF CLAIMS

Use specialized tools to check claims for accuracy before submitting them to insurance companies. A check at the Service Code level can make the process faster and smoother.

4. FIX REJECTED CLAIMS TIMELY

Your submitted claim can be rejected by insurance due to missing or incomplete information. Amend the error and re-submit it for processing without any delay.

5. REGULAR INSURANCE FOLLOW-UP

More often than not, insurance companies fail to pay promptly and accurately. Regular follow-ups with insurance companies shall be done to determine claim status.

6. OUTSOURCE BILLING WORK

If the billing process is taking away your staff’s attention from delivering the best patient experience, you may consider outsourcing it to companies to save your time and money.
