Most dentists are unaware of how many dental procedures can be billed to medical insurance. As the population is aging, more and more people are being treated for medical conditions. Many people are being diagnosed with sleep apnea. One of the treatments for this disorder is an oral appliance. These can only be billed to medical insurance. There are a lot of studies that show the linkage between oral health and systemic health. The control of diabetes and gum disease has been linked together by several major studies. Cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy are also more likely to have issues in the oral cavity. Studies have also linked gum disease to low birth weight pre-term babies. All of these patients can have dental treatment billed to their medical insurance. These are just a few examples, the list goes on and on. Being able to bill medical insurance can help patients with and without dental insurance get the treatment they need.
Billing Dental insurance is different from billing medical insurance. The forms are different and require different coding and information. There is also a Medicare consideration. Should a dentist opt in or out of Medicare and how to do it. What are the Medicare forms like? All of these issues and more will be touched upon in this very informative webinar.
