           Course Code:  T 150
           Fee:  Dentists $50   All Others $25

           Quick Summary:  How much income has your practice sacrificed annually because of coding errors and a less
           than stellar understanding of insurance administration?  It’s long past time to correct those errors and learn a new
           strategy.

           Course Description:  Coding errors are predictable in today’s dental practice.  Learn the top coding errors and
           how not to make them!  You will also receive new, valuable information on some of the “hot” sections of the CDT
           code, which you can use to identify and “fix” coding problems that lurk in your practice.  Most practices can ex-
           pect legitimate net increases in cash flow immediately by learning how to do it right.

           Dealing with dental insurance is overwhelming, but key strategies can save you time, prevent hassles, and keep
           you out of jail.  You will receive essential tools to properly file dental insurance claims and calculate primary and
           secondary insurance receipts.  In addition, co-pay forgiveness, discounting, multiple fee positioning, patient gifts,
           falsifying NPI numbers, and even PPO strategies will be discussed.  Stop leaving money on the table as PPOs
           dominate the marketplace - a tipping point!
