DE Business Lab: Can I bill medical insurance for this?
After all, there might be a way for our practices to be reimbursed for more than dental insurance is willing to pay these days: medical insurance. I spoke with medical billing expert Kandra Sellers, RDH, who has learned all the ins and outs of medical billing over her 30 years in dentistry.
She told me that medical billing is different and much higher than dental insurance. We can be reimbursed for procedures such as panoramic X-rays, CT scans, all types of examinations, ATM services, appliance services and surgical services, to name a few.
There is a learning curve because medical billing is very different from dental billing, with a different coding system. Through her company, tipsmedicalbilling.com, Kandra will visit your office and immediately begin training staff in medical billing. It can even help them with retroactive billing because medical billing is valid for up to a year?
Does this seem like a good choice for your practice? Contact Kandra through her website at tipsmedicalbilling.com or call or text her at (612) 418-7870 to get started with medical billing today!
