Professional PPO Negotiators
The field of dentistry is continually evolving, becoming more competitive daily. Small and private dentists are forced to compete with corporate dental offices and multi-doctor practices. Dentists are often at the mercy of insurance companies as they drive down the price of coverage for insured patients. In order to remain viable, it is necessary for Dentists to accept a variety of insurance plans and find high reimbursement rates. Since every insurance plan operates a little differently, you need to know where to turn to effectively negotiate with insurance companies in order to get the best reimbursement rates. Negotiating the details with PPOs can be complex and overwhelming. As professional PPO negotiators, our experience will simplify the process for you, eliminating guesswork and potential mistakes.
What Many Dentists Don’t Know About PPOs
If you belong to one or more PPO, you’ve likely experienced insurance companies telling you what costs are covered for specific procedures and services. Many small and private dentist offices are unaware that these fees are often negotiable. If you’re expecting the highest possible revenue for your clinic, your fees and coverage plans should be negotiated competitively, in order to get the highest possible reimbursement. It’s important to have the right skills and tools to negotiate a fee schedule prior to contracting as a preferred provider. You’ll need to understand where there are opportunities to get better prices. In most cases you can only renegotiate your fees every 24 to 36 months, so you want to make it count when you have the chance.
