« on: August 26, 2015, 05:34:58 PM »
1. How can I get an estimant of what the patients portion is after insurance is taken out?
2. How do we find out how to get covered for oral appliances?

Your questions are not clear.  Are you a billing service that is meeting with a dentist?

Yes we are a billing service. We are working on our first account and have questions that we are unsure of the answers to. So any advice or answers would be helpful.
Thank you.

Do you mean after the EOB is received?  You shouldn't estimate, you should have an exact amount.  Patient responsibility is usually indicated on the EOB

2. How do we find out how to get covered for oral appliances?

Are you asking about getting pre-authorization?  You would contact each patient's insurance carrier to find out what the coverage is.

3. Do billing companies offer submitting dental implants under medical?

I didn't think implants were covered under medical insurance unless it was the result of some accident.  I thought implants were a dental coverage only.

Hope that helps with what you are looking for.
