Things Dental Practitioners Should Consider When Deciding To Opt In or Out of Medicare

Are you aware that, as of June 1, 2015, dental practices are required to have opted in or out of Medicare?  Are you also aware of the ramifications of not opting in or out? 

During this 60-minute webinar expert speaker Marianne Harper will share information, tips and strategies to help you make a decision in the best interest of your dental practice.

Get answers to:

  • The ramifications of not complying
  • Why this requirement is a requirement
  • Dental procedures that are and are not covered by medicare
  • The considerations that should be made by the practice in the decision to opt in or opt out
  • The requirements if a dental practice opts out
  • How DME enrollment differs
  • The differences between being a participating and a non-participating provider
  • Also, get resources to help with enrollment

Training Objective:

  • Medicare for the majority of dental practices has been only considered to apply to medical practices. This conference will enable you to see that dentistry is part of the medical community and that they will be required to deal with Medicare requirements.
  • The paperwork for opting out is very difficult and may require outsourcing to get it done correctly.  Errors in this area can result in problems. Learn how you can prevent that from happening.
  • The June 1, 2015 deadline for opting in or opting out of Medicare is not far off. This conference will urge dental practices to quickly make the decision and act upon it, as the process is not a quick one and outsourcing, if chosen, can result in delays.
  • Be aware, this requirement applies to the majority of dental practices.
  • Understand the advantages of opting in or opting out, and that it may not always be a bad decision to opt in.

Who should attend

  • Dentists
  • Dental practice owners
  • Dental practice office managers
  • Dental practice insurance claims coordinators
