Success with Dental Insurance: Mastering the Codes is Easy But That’s Just the Beginning with Tom Limoli, Jr
December 7, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This workshop greatly benefits all team members, including dental assistants, hygienists and most of all the dentists. These subjects will provide an overview of the information and individual skills needed to grow with, as well as profit from the ever-changing reimbursement environment. The choice of what code to use when usually occurs in the clinical area, where the procedures are observed. No matter how you slice it, the dentist is ultimately accountable for what is charted as well as billed.

Have you noticed the new reimbursement challenges that began in 2017? Crowns with and without buildups not being approved like they used to? Now with every D4341 they want radiographs and periodontal charts and then they pay it at D4342. Get ready, because it’s going to get a lot tougher before it gets any easier. Better yet – get prepared for tomorrow’s world of changing reimbursement systems.
This full day workshop will provide for you a comprehensive overview of the skills and information needed to cope with as well as profit from market changes. Learn to work with and understand the patient’s benefit plan restrictions and limitations. Even if your office doesn’t accept the insurance assignment, you shouldn’t ignore this critical component of “Value Added” customer service while you streamline and simplify the reimbursement process.
In addition, the workshop will provide for you the basic skills and information needed to cope with, as well as profit from market changes. Benefit plan provisions, limitations, exclusions and carve outs of coverage can have a direct correlation with the patient accepting comprehensive treatment. Learn to work with and understand the patients plan.
As concerns coding, CDT was supposed to make our lives easier. During the day we will focus on the most common, as well as challenging sections of the coding sequence. Clinical scenarios will be discussed from both the clinical as well as the administrative perspectives. Appropriate coding and clinical documentation will take the mystique (as well as headache) out of the entire reimbursement process.
The day will conclude with Tom’s “Seven Keys to Reimbursement Success” Over the years, its strength, as well as flexibility proves to be a winning strategy for every dental office.
For the better part of almost 40 years, the Limoli’s have guided dental offices and the various components of the benefit industry in streamlining and simplifying the overall reimbursement process. Their straightforward and direct approach has been embraced and implemented in thousands of practices across the country. The width and depth of Tom’s knowledge and perspective make for a uniquely refreshing educational experience.
