Are you coding your dental claims correctly?

Probably one of the most frustrating things we find when assisting dentists with their dental insurance problems is the fact that many offices do not code their procedures correctly. And because of this, they are sometimes missing out on potential benefits and possibly mis-reporting work performed. Are you aware of the difference between a multi-surface restoration and a crown-buildup and when each should be used? How about the difference between types of exams? Were you aware that CDT-2005 has a procedure code that can be used for Valplast partials?

Make sure the insurance coordinator (and the doctor) understand the nuances of the different codes. Take courses (or contact us) for information on correct coding.

Because if you're not coding correctly, you may not be getting paid correctly.
