    Utilizing D0180 and D4346

    Utilizing D0180 and D4346

    Join Practice Booster's Dr. Greg Grobmyer as he discusses two CDT codes that every practice should be using to maximize insurance reimbursements; D0180 comprehensive periodontal evaluation and D4346 scaling in presence of moderate or severe gingival inflammation. Learn when to use the codes, how to properly document in the clinical record, what attachments to submit with the claim, and what a difference utilizing D0180 and D4346 correctly can make for your practice.







    .































    This podcast episode may make a significant difference to your bottom line! All general dental practices and even some specialty practices can benefit from proper reporting of these two procedures. D0180 comprehensive periodontal evaluation and D4346 scaling in presence of moderate or severe gingival inflammation are both codes that likely already apply to patients in your office, but it is very possible you are not utilizing these codes to their full extent!

    AI in Dental Insurance Adjudication

    AI in Dental Insurance Adjudication

    Join Practice Booster's Dr. Greg Grobmyer as he talks with Dr. Dominique Fufidio about the use of Artificial Intelligence in dental insurance claims adjudication, document scanning, image interpretation, and more!























    Dr. Dominique Fufidio, DDS, FAGD, is the founder and main coach at Fufidio Consulting Group (FCG). Dr. Fufidio has pioneered a unique coaching experience focused on teaching an understanding of the dental insurance claims review process and the rationale behind the decisions on the EOB. Dr. Fufidio has established herself as a successful, fee-for-service, former private practice owner, dental artificial intelligence co-creator, and top-performing dental claim reviewer and Utilization Review Director for the largest Utilization Review Agent in the United States. Now, she is on a mission to bring clinical alignment to dental providers and the dental insurance payor market, helping dental offices get paid for what they do!







    Each insurance carrier is different and each reviews claims differently. Each payor selects claims to review differently and has clinical criteria that are different from one another, albeit largely similar. The concern across the industry is that the clinical documentation submitted needs to substantiate a “proof of loss” and true “medical necessity” for the treatment rendered. It is crucial to understand that the decision from the insurance payor is a benefit determination, not a treatment recommendation. The treatment recommendation is clinically yours, and yours alone. You must make the best recommendations for your patients and submit your diagnostic evidence in support.
