Choose the Correct Diagnosis Code and Determine Dental vs. Medical Billing 

Distinguishing between dental and medical billing may sometimes be unclear. Understanding a patient’s plan benefits and the nature of the procedure will assist in determining which steps to take next. Analyzing documentation, incorporating medical history and determining the most appropriate diagnosis code are key elements to trigger coverage and reimbursement. This 90-minute webinar will provide knowledge of how to choose the correct diagnosis code and how to cross-code between medical and dental while reviewing documentation tips that will support medical necessity
