We know that filing dental insurance claims and getting paid in a timely manner is important to the efficient operations of most practices. Since dental coding and claims submissions are a unique challenge requiring special attachments, narratives, and information much different than medical claims processing we would like to offer the following tips:
Coding: Dental coding governed by the American Dental Association has code updates, revisions, and deletions each year. Staying up to date with the current codes is the first step in making sure your claims get paid.
Narratives and Attachments: Because the doctor does not always put in the clinical notes necessary for the claim to be successfully processed, this article with templates is especially helpful.
While we can’t guarantee your claim will get paid we hope this will improve your overall knowledge and claims process.
