Stay Out of Jail: Avoid Coding Errors & Excel in Insurance

July 30, 2020
12:00 am – 12:00 am
  • Charles Blair, D.D.S.

Coding errors are predictable in today’s dental practice. Learn the top coding errors and how not to make them. You will also receive new, valuable information on some of the “hot” sections of the CDT code, which you can use to identify and fix coding problems that lurk in your practice. Most practices can expect legitimate net increases in cash flow immediately by learning how to do it right. Dealing with insurance is overwhelming, but key strategies can save you time, prevent hassles and keep you out of jail.

Learning Objectives:
1) Learn through predictive error correction how to avoid typical coding errors.
2) Gain knowledge in proper narratives and documentation.
3) Gain knowledge in co-pay forgiveness, discounting, multiple fees, and NPI numbers.
4) Gain knowledge in how to handle patient gifts, evaluate and deal with PPO’s and deal with the unclaimed property office.
