What I personally discovered is that utilizing an actual medical billing software with e-claim submission and attachments dedicated to medical billing is the most efficient way of deling with the medical b illing claims for dental services. However, the stand alone medical billing software for a typical dental office is cost prohibitive. Dental Claims Cleanup was able to obtain a group price specifically for our providers allowing use of the software at a reasonable price ot the Dentists. The office can do it themselves or can outsource the medical billing to Dental Claims Cleanup. Regardless, I recommend training as the first step to make that final decision.
Medical Billing for Dental services include options of training, then can be an add-on service to our dental billing services, or is set up as a stand alone program. Your team or the DCC's team will remotely utilize cloud medical software and their e-claims submission service. The client is responsible for the license, electronic claim submission fees, and we will facilitate the setup for the Client to. Software utilization fees will be billed directly to the Client.
1. DCC will provide Medical billing worksheets that serve as treatment planning and routing slip of performed/treatment planned procedures to be billed to medical.
2. The Medical billing digital forms and templates will contain cross coding ADA/CDT and associated list of ICD-10 diagnostic choices for those procedure codes.
3. Providing Doctors will be responsible to check off diagnostic ICD-10 codes, and CPT codes that have been performed or are treatment planned. This worksheet will be part of the patient’s record and will be scanned to the patient’s chart as well as provided to DCC for medical billing purposes.
4. Medical Billing worksheets will be developed for each Client to cater to the services provided by the practice. Medically billable dental procedures that are eligible for medical billing will be submitted ONLY based on the following:
5. Procedures will not be submitted to medical insurance if they are related to routine dental care or the medical necessity is based on neglect of oral care ex: caries resulting in need for fillings and other restorative procedures.
Interesting information that I have learned from Dr. Nikhil Saha, a colleague, regarding his experience with medical claims for dental services. If you feel that your practice could benefit from medical billing services, please contact us to discuss this further.
