Dental medical billing is different compared to all other specialties’ medical billing. For most specialty-based medical billing we look towards maximizing the reimbursements using documentation and coding but with dental Legion Healthcare Solutions (LHS) looks at patient care and service delivery. Service delivery includes dental services like TMD, implants, oral surgeries, bone grafts, sleep apnea, laser procedures, exams, and radiographs.
LHS has a team of certified coders and billers who have worked extensively with dental practices in US. With a focus on why the procedure needs to be done, it in cases the dental clinic chances of getting to several underlying problems ad even show the reason of patient care. The underlying patient condition will even affect the procedure, hence the diagnosis needs to be supporting.
“When it comes to patient diagnosis coding, it’s usually simple for dental when they visit once in a year or six months. However, if the patient is showing regular cavities or caries, they might be suffering from an underlying condition that might be anything from oral infection to diabetes. Hence we usually encourage the dental clinic to get the patient’s underlying information before any procedure it gives a complete view of patientcare service.”

LHS is increasingly observing that overlap between medical and dental services, leading to reimbursement being messed. We have observed over the years, billing patients’ medical benefits plan eases the financial burden on the patients and conserving their annual dental insurance plan. Having single dental insurance is enough if the patient is without any underlying condition affecting their dental health.
