Topic: Navigating the Mystery of EOB’s: Keep Revenue in your Office

Topic Details: 
Explanation of Benefits are confusing and difficult to understand. Team members are often unaware of how interpret the explanation. Let’s take the mystery out of the EOB’s for both you and your patients.

In this seminar you will learn:
1. Terminology-
2. Adjustments- Making sure you are charging your patients correctly
3. Denials-Learn ways to maximize the insurance for your patients
4. Coordination of Benefits- Regular and Non-Duplication –how to utilize both while benefiting Patient & Office both.
5. Interactive review of actual EOB’s with Q & A
6. FFS Offices- ways to help estimate for your patients
7. Trends in Dental Insurance

How we track and enter revenue is essential to the success of a practice. Insurance Coordinators collect what the office produces and no one wants to work for free. This seminar will clarify terms and assist you in collecting from the insurance company all that is owed to you and your patient.
