Description

Many dental hygienists delegate the coding, processing and submission of dental insurance claims to the office manager or financial coordinator. This CE webinar challenges dental hygienists and dentists to learn the basics of dental insurance, especially for the procedures they perform on a regular basis. Licensed dental professionals can be held responsible for the information submitted on insurance claims, even if they personally never touched the claim.

Objectives

On completion of this course the learner will be able to:
• Review and describe the history of dental insurance
• Identify frequently used dental hygiene codes
• Understand when to submit a narrative and/or claim attachments
• Recognize common limitations and exclusions of dental benefit plans
• Discuss ICD-10 codes and dentistry
