How Dentist Billing works ?
As a dentist or office manager, you might assume, “Oh, that’s our mechanism to collect money,” when you think about dental billing. You’re correct, but it goes beyond that. Understanding the dental billing procedure can help you maintain and improve the health of your billing system, which will make or break your dental practice.
Your future is at risk if you just assume that billing is going smoothly. No dentist should be forced to accept low collections due to their ignorance of the proper operation of their dental billing system. The following information about dental billing will specifically assist you in understanding dental insurance billing.
It’s critical for dental professionals to have a thorough understanding of dental billing if they want to maintain a successful practice.
Since 2012, Dental Claim Support has worked to comprehend, simplify, and improve the dental billing process for dental offices. Our experience as a dental billing business has shown us that many dental teams struggle to answer the seemingly straightforward question of how this procedure operates.
What is the procedure for dental billing?
The entire procedure of getting paid for the services your practice offers by insurance companies and clients is referred to as the dental billing process. Patient billing and insurance claim processing are the two primary revenue streams for your office. They together make up the dental billing process.
The dental billing procedure can be completed easily if you follow certain stages, just like with any other process.
An outline of the steps involved in dental billing is provided below.
1. Gathering patient data – When a patient calls to make a dental appointment, this is done during the initial phone call. Their name, phone number, address, email address, contract preferences, date of birth, name of their company or insurance plan, insurance carrier, carrier’s provider phone number, and insurance ID number will all be included in this data.
2. Confirming the patient’s insurance coverage – After gathering the patient’s personal and insurance information, you can either call the insurance provider or log into your insurance portal to confirm it. This will offer you a thorough overview of their benefits and inform you of the current status of their insurance coverage.
3. Documenting dental work and coding information – As the patient receives dental care on the day of their appointment, a member of the care team documents the pertinent information in their clinical notes and codes the procedures carried out. Typically, a member of the administrative team makes sure this is recorded, examined, and electronically signed by the provider in your dental software. A daily sign-off on the day sheet is recommended as a best practice to ensure that what happens in the dentist’s chair is consistently recorded in your software and on your patient’s ledger for billing.
4. Tracking and submitting claims along with any attachments—Using the data you’ve entered into your software, you’ll now create, batch, and submit your insurance claims. Any necessary attachments, the procedure(s) code(s), and the patient’s complete personal and insurance information will be included in the claim. Clinical notes, x-rays, periodontal charts, narratives, initial EOBs, intraoral pictures, etc. are included as attachments.
5. Resolving issues with pending claims – If a claim has been rejected or 30 days have passed and it has still not been paid, you must investigate further. Working the insurance ageing report is what it is called. Your biller receives a list of unpaid claims, gets in touch with the insurance provider, determines what went wrong with the claim, and then tries to appeal it for compensation. The biller’s proficiency and effectiveness at this vital stage will influence whether you see a high collection rate or a low rate with hefty overhead.
6. Billing patients: Depending on the revenue model you’ve selected, you may charge patients the full cost of the procedure up front (fee for service) or you may charge patients the balance after deducting what their insurance benefits should cover (reimbursement model). When a patient is billed, you can either collect their portion before they leave the dentist’s clinic or ask them to provide payment later via mail or email. After that, you submit the claim for insurance reimbursement to them. In either case, completing patient accounts receivable collection is essential since it can provide nearly half of your revenue.
7. Posting payments: You must enter the payment into your practice management software after your insurance claim has been paid and deposited into your bank account. By doing this, you maintain accurate documentation and reporting of all your information. Additionally, it completes a claim’s life cycle, allowing you to close it out. Patient payments must also be quickly posted in order to ensure the accuracy of your patient invoices and cash flow numbers.
8. Running important reports, such as collections and account ageing reports – Once payments are posted and the claim is closed out, you can really examine how your billing activities are performing to determine how well they are bringing in money for the services your practice provides.
Through your dental software, you are able to run both net production and net collection reports as well as outstanding account and insurance ageing reports. These reports will show you a list of outstanding claims and/or patient balances that need attention.
Now you have an overview that gives you an idea of what the dental billing process looks like. You can see the lifecycle of a claim from start to finish. Understanding this can help you stay on track with how you collect your patient and insurance information and how you work to get your practise paid via insurance claims and patient payments.
