Medical Billing For Dentists

Medical Billing for Dentists

Unique Solutions for Unique Challenges.

As a dentist, did you know that specific procedures can be billed to medical insurance when deemed medically necessary? Some examples of procedures that may be covered by medical insurance include:

Oral Surgery

If a patient needs oral surgery for a medical reason, such as the removal of a tumor, jaw reconstruction, or extraction of impacted teeth, medical insurance may cover the procedure.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Dental devices like oral appliances that help alleviate obstructive sleep apnea may be covered by medical insurance.

Treatment of Oral Cancer

If a patient is diagnosed with oral cancer, medical insurance may cover the necessary treatments like radiation or chemotherapy.

Treatment of Jaw Joint Disorders

  1. Medical insurance may cover the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD) if a patient experiences severe pain, limited jaw mobility, or joint pathology.

Billing medical insurance for these procedures comes with unique challenges that can be difficult to navigate on your own. First, It’s important to note that not all medical insurances cover these procedures, and coverage can vary depending on the policy. Additionally, dentists need proper documentation and medical justification for billing medical insurance for these procedures.

Our team of experienced professionals understands the unique problems dentists face when billing medical insurance. We offer customized solutions to help you overcome these challenges and improve your practice’s financial performance.

Unique Problems Dentists Have Billing Medical Insurance for Sleep Apnea Oral Appliances

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder affecting millions of people worldwide. Oral appliances can effectively treat sleep apnea, but billing medical insurance for these devices can be challenging.

Some of the unique problems dentists face when billing medical insurance for sleep apnea appliances include:

  • Lack of awareness among insurance companies about the effectiveness of oral appliances for sleep apnea

  • Complex documentation requirements for medical insurance claims

  • High denial rates for claims due to incomplete or inaccurate documentation

At Triton Medical Solutions, we understand these challenges and can help you navigate the medical billing process for sleep apnea appliances.

Medical Billing for Oral Surgery, Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD), Radiology (CBCT), and Other Procedures

In addition to sleep apnea appliances, there are many other medical procedures that dentists can bill to medical insurance. These include oral surgery, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD), radiology including cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), and others. Billing medical insurance for these procedures can significantly increase revenue and provide better patient care.

However, there are also challenges that dentists may face when billing medical insurance for these procedures, such as:

  • Complex coding requirements for medical insurance claims

  • Lengthy and detailed documentation requirements for medical procedures
