Presentation Information

The full-day Abra-Code-Dabra course will take the difficulty out of dental-medical cross coding. Through this introduction to cross coding, attendees will be provided with the know-how to help their dental practices take the leap into cross coding and become part of the latest trends in cutting-edge modern dentistry. Attendees will learn how to determine medical necessity and which dental procedures can be filed medically, how to work with different types of medical plans, and how to work with medical codes and forms. This course examines the WIN-WIN of implementing cross coding as both a benefit to our patients and also to our practices. With increased case acceptance due to cross coding, profitability will increase.
