Tips on Implementing Dental Medical Cross Coding with Ease

Learning how to implement dental-medical cross coding is as important as knowing how to cross code. In this session, Marianne Harper will help you understand what procedures are medically necessary and how dental staff members will need to learn to communicate with each other regarding which patients qualify for cross coding.

Marianne will provide an overview of what you need to implement cross coding. In addition, She will discuss how you may be able to use your dental practice management software for cross coding. For those programs that do not have cross coding software, she will provide information on low cost claim completion software.
