Dental Insurance Billing Hands On Application
This course will help students understand and realize that how the dental office handles and bills insurance can be a first impression of the doctor and the practice. Since it is a practice builder or practice breaker, it is the insurance biller's responsibility to have updated knowledge of benefit limitations, frequencies, and insurance contracts. It is equally important to have systems in place for follow up and collections of patients' out of pocket payments.
