We have three full-time dentists on staff that provide clinical advice, coding suggestions, claim examination, and narrative support. The account specialists often work together on strategies to improve client's accounts and it is this effort that produces optimal results. We provide a complete line of services in the dental billing field and are not limited only to benefits verification or EOB breakdown like other services. Our services are designed to provide your office with a virtual employee that handles ALL your dental billing needs or you can hire us to do something specific, but you will still benefit from the support in all other areas as needed.

Charging Flat Fee vs % of Collections
Dentist think that paying a company based on a % of collections is a motivator to perform. Our philosophy is to perform for our clients with best results or they will fire us the next month. our contract runs month to month. Internally, we have baseline productivity goals that the team strives for. Most other billing companies have been charging based on % of collections.
Recently, Medicaid has determined that charging a % of collections falls under the unethical fee splitting laws. In February 2017, Medicaid has sent letters to providers requesting refunds for money paid to billing companies, based on fee splitting which is against the law. They are charging 9% interest on that money. Since Medicaid sets the precedent for other insurance carriers, it is most likely that other insurance companies will follow this suit and make millions in refunds. Our clients are safe. Read Article
