From simple to complex, in this presentation, we will train you how to efficiently and effectively communicate with the dental benefits companies who pay for much of the dental work you provide. We will discuss how to more seamlessly submit claims in order to be paid more promptly when possible. We will discuss how to keep a collegial relationship and work towards helping your patients use their benefits. We will review the resources you have as a member of the AAE, which can help you when there is trouble communicating, which is inevitable in the system. We will discuss ideas of how to make the system better, and what we, as providers, do not have control over.
