WANT SOMEONE TO TAKE THE JUMP WITH YOU?
THE ULTIMATE SERVICE FOR IMPLEMENTING MEDICAL BILLING… WORKING ONE-ON-ONE WITH A HANDS-ON SPECIALIST COACHING YOU IN YOUR OFFICE.
This program, offered by Kandra Sellers (Pristine Interprofessional Academy), includes in-office coaching of your team through the entire medical claims cycle as medical billing protocols are added to your practice. Kandra will guide you through the process starting with gathering the necessary information for a properly documented claim, pre-authorization, gap exceptions, peer-to-peers, claim submission, payment, and appeals (if needed). This is not a billing service, but rather a coaching program designed to train your practice to comfortably bill medical insurance appropriately and successfully in-office.
Successful Medical Billing
Dr. Farrugia spent two years developing, implementing, and mastering medical billing protocols for services rendered in his practice. This culminated in 2013 with the completion of his first book, Successful Medical Billing for Dentists I: FUNDAMENTALS. Since then, that book and the companion course of the same name have been the foundation for Dr. Farrugia to share his knowledge and help other dentists successfully implement medical billing into their practices.
Dr. Chris P. Farrugia is a speaker, teacher, and leader in medical billing and digital dentistry. An early adopter of digital CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Farrugia added CT to his practice in 2011. He trains dentists nationwide who want to advance their practices with CAD/CAM digital restorative techniques, digital imaging and successfully access medical benefits for their services. He practices digital restorative dentistry in Northwest Florida. Dr. Farrugia has been a speaker or featured presenter at DentsplySirona World, the Florida Dental Conference, Yankee Dental Congress, American Association of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) annual meeting, American Association of Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) scientific session, Medical Unversity or South Carolina (MUSC), Maryland University School of Dentistry continuing education (MUSD), Washington Academy of General Dentistry (WAGD), Sirona 3D Summits, and several Ivoclar Technology Symposia.
NEED SOMEONE TO DO THIS FOR YOU?
Medical payment for services rendered represents a decision point for dental practices. You can choose to:
- Ignore medical insurance.
- Learn how-to bill medical insurance (in-office).
- Outsource medical billing.
I strongly believe that we work hard for our fees and should keep ALL of them; however, some practices are not yet ready to learn how-to file medical claims or implement medical billing protocols into the practice. Maybe you’ve tried without success. Maybe there has been some turnover in staff. Or maybe it’s just not the right time to implement medical billing into your practice. For those that want an outsource solution … someone to do this for them, I recommend OneSleepAnswer. (onesleepanswer.com)
What should you look for in a billing company? First and foremost it should be ethical and fully transparent. Fraudulent claims put the doctor’s license at risk. Secondly, it should be willing to deal with insurance plans of all types (HMOs), not just the easy ones. Thirdly, they need to charge a fair fee for this service.
OneSleepAnswer was formed by combining the expertise of a physician’s medical billing company with a leading expert in medical billing by dental practices. Starting first with dental sleep medicine claims, OSA is a full service medical billing company that meets my criteria.
