Now, more dentists are offering treatments for certain medical conditions, like sleep apnea. While this offers a great service to the community and helps build your practice, it does come with a set of challenges. When treating medical conditions, you have to bill the patient’s medical insurance, not their dental insurance. As a result, it can lead to errors that could cause issues with the reimbursement process. When billing medical insurances for dentist practices, you need pre-authorizations. With insurance pre-determinations, you will ensure a procedure is covered under the patient’s insurance prior to offering the treatment.
