Hello and welcome to our podcast series. My name is Meghann Drella and I’m a Senior Solutions Manager here at Outsource Strategies International. Today, I will be discussing why dental eligibility verification is crucial for root canal therapy.

00:07 Why dental eligibility verification is crucial for root canal therapy

Dental insurance may cover root canal’s basic procedures or request coverage for major procedures. The best way for practices to ease the patient intake process is to perform a thorough dental insurance verification to understand the patient’s coverage before the office visit.

00:27 Insurance details that can be verified

Some of the most important pieces to verify the effective coverage dates, waiting periods, maximums, deductibles, treatment history, benefits used to date, type of plan and fee schedule, claim submission information, coverage percentage, implant and orthodontic coverages, frequencies, missing tooth clause and specific codes as required. An accurate and thorough insurance verification will help patients avoid surprise out of pocket payments claim submission delays or errors.

I hope this helps, but always remember the documentation as well as a thorough knowledge of payer regulations and guidelines is critical to ensure accurate reimbursement for the procedures performed.

Thank you for joining me and stay tuned for my next podcast!
