Hi, this is Amber Darst, Solutions Manager for Managed Outsourced Solutions and on this I’ll be discussing how insurance verification prior to a patient’s appointment is crucial to keep your AR in good standing.

00:17 Dental Insurance Challenges in Practices

Unlike other specialties, dental practices face many challenges, especially when it comes to the insurance coverage and the limitations of frequencies involved in the various plans and policies. Also, while standard dental insurance will commonly cover cleanings, fillings and other routine care, major restorative works such as crowns or bridges are only covered at 50 percent, if they’re even covered at all which then results in out of pocket expenses for the patients. This type of information is very beneficial to have before the patient is seen in the office, as you can collect any upfront costs before the procedures are performed which then avoids a loss of money from post-procedure billing and then the patient refusing to pay.
