One of the many challenges of owning your own dental practice is having an efficient billing system. Still, even when the internal processes are efficient, it can be difficult working with insurance companies to receive timely payment. The back-and-forth communication with insurance companies can take up a significant amount of time. By keeping your staff attentive to patients and off the phone, they’ll be able to provide a much better experience for each patient that comes through your door.
OMS Partners specializes in medical billing for dentists, hospitals and medical practices, because we know how complex each transaction can be. Dealing with both dental and medical insurance companies can be a hassle and takes time away from patient care, so we are here to make the process much easier for dental offices.
Knowing which insurance plans to add, keep or drop is important to maximizing the use of your time in the operating room. Given the size of our network, we have an intimate understanding of what each procedure is worth to each insurance company. As part of our ongoing billing & collections services, we negotiate with each insurance company annually to ensure that our clients are getting the appropriate reimbursement for the procedures they perform.
Difference Between Medical Billing And Dental Billing
When it comes to medical billing for dental offices, getting payment isn’t always easy. One reason is there are differences between medical billing and dental billing. Standard dental work typically will get billed to dental insurance companies. However, services like sleep dentistry could fall under medical insurance, which is completely different than working with a dental insurance company. Medical insurance claims typically require a few more steps and specific coding to ensure timely payment. Since dental office staff members don’t process claims like this every day, it can take more time and energy to do so.
Our service for medical billing for dental offices includes doing all the work with insurance companies behind the scenes, so the office staff doesn’t have to. There are many other things for a staff to work on to provide better experiences for their patients. OMS Partners can help ensure timely payments from insurance companies without requiring time and resources from the actual dentist staff.
Ensure Timely Payment From Insurance Companies
Nothing is worse than not getting paid by insurance companies, especially when all of the internal systems and processes make the dental practice operate efficiently. With specialized medical billing for dental offices, late payments are a thing of the past. Our staff at OMS Partners works diligently to ensure payments from insurance companies are made timely, so dental offices have no problems covering expenses. Dealing with insurance companies alone can be very challenging, so allow us to remove the hassle.
Focus On Patients, Not Billing Issues
While medical billing for dental offices is important to keep the office operating, it’s not the most important aspect of a successful business. When dental offices utilize the services provided by OMS Partners, they can focus more on providing the best service possible to their patients. Many offices have to hire new employees just to handle the billing side of the business. This strategy can help ensure patients get the attention they deserve, but it also creates more expenses than necessary since another salary has to be paid out.
OMS Partners takes away the burden of having to pay an extra salary and allow the current staff to provide the best service possible to patients. And when it comes to billing issues, we always go the extra mile to ensure the highest reimbursement possible is received.
Why OMS Partners Is Different
OMS Partners is different because we work specifically on medical billing for dental offices. We know how all the billing processes work, and consider ourselves to be an extension of any dental office team. Your staff will not have to go through extensive training to learn about our medical billing for dentist offices program, so instead, they can focus entirely on providing the best patient experience possible. Getting the most out of insurance companies can be a difficult challenge, especially when you don’t have the time or resources to invest in the process. When you rely on OMS Partners, you can ensure you’ll get the maximum reimbursement without having to put forth a significant amount of effort.
