The Importance of Pre-Verification in Dental Practices
Pre-verification is for medical billing only. Dental does not guarantee payment on preauths and therefore we do not recommend it for dental.
As a dentist, you know that providing quality care for your patients is your top priority. However, you also know that the business side of things can sometimes get in the way. That’s where we come in. At Elite Dental Medical Billing, we specialize in taking care of the billing and insurance verification process for dental offices. We understand that your time is best spent caring for patients, and our goal is to make your life as easy as possible by handling the administrative tasks associated with billing.
What is Pre-Verification?
One of the most important services we offer is pre-verification of patient benefits. This process involves contacting the patient’s insurance company to confirm that their policy is still in effect and that it provides coverage for the dental services that are being rendered. We understand that this can be a time-consuming task, which is why we are happy to take it off of your plate.
Pre-verification also allows you to estimate the patient’s out-of-pocket expenses. This estimate can help the patient to make informed decisions about their treatment options and can avoid any surprises when it comes time to pay the bill. Finally, pre-verification gives you the peace of mind knowing that you have done everything possible to ensure that the patient’s insurance will cover the proposed treatment.
Why You Should Be Doing Pre-Verification
There are many reasons why pre-verification is important for dental practices. First and foremost, it protects your practice from funding dental treatments that may not be covered by the patient’s insurance. This can save your practice a lot of money in the long run. In addition, pre-verification can also help you to avoid billing mistakes.
In addition to freeing up your time, pre-verification has a number of other benefits as well. Perhaps most importantly, it helps to ensure that you are getting reimbursed for the services you provide. In today’s insurance climate, it’s more important than ever to verify coverage before rendering services. By taking care of this important step, we can help to maximize your reimbursement and minimize your headaches.
Dental practices should strongly consider implementing pre-verification into their process. Pre-verification can save your practice time and money while protecting you from billing mistakes. In addition, pre-verification helps patients to make informed decisions about their treatment options and can give you peace of mind knowing that their insurance will cover the proposed treatment.
