How to Implement and Take Advantage of Dental-Medical Cross Coding

Due to the paradigm shift in dentistry where it is growing as the field of dental medicine, dental practices are now in the position to help their patients obtain additional benefits from their medical insurance plans for medically necessary dental procedures. This will increase case acceptance and, therefore, profits. However, most dental practices have no idea of how to do this.

This session with expert speaker Marianne Harper will provide the basics of medical coding and will take away the difficulty of implementing a cross coding system. By understanding the multiple medical code sets and knowing how to complete the medical claim form, dental practices will be more successful with this process.

You will also learn that your practice probably already has the tools necessary to implement cross coding and, if not, you’ll be provided with resources to obtain those tools.

  • The benefits of implementing dental-medical cross coding for dental practices.
  • Identify what types of dental procedures can be submitted to medical insurance.
