Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons and Orthodontists take special note.
Are you billing for medically necessary dental procedures? You should. An increasing number of dental carriers are recognizing the medical nature of certain dental procedures. At present, the following medically necessary procedures can and should be filed with medical carriers:
- Trauma procedures
- TMD procedures
- Oral surgical, laser, and periodontal
- Implant, endodontic, and prosthodontist
- Sleep apnea appliances
- Oral cancer screening
- X-rays including CT Scans
We will bill the medical carriers for these services. We can educate your practice about the procedure and diagnosis codes required to establish medical necessity. Billing both dental and medical insurance will increase your revenue while lowering your patients’ out-of-pocket costs. Start now.
