Jennifer Frustino, DMD, PhD


As dentistry continues to shift towards oral-systemic wellness, more dental procedures are being recognized as medically necessary and being covered under major health insurance plans and policies. Dental practices are recognizing the significant benefits to offering medical insurance reimbursement such as increased case acceptance, expanded referral networks and increased revenue. Cross-coding practices that utilize the patient's medical insurance are maximizing the patient's benefits and giving them easier access to much needed care. In this lecture, attendees will learn how to incorporate cross-coding and medical billing into their office. Discussion will include the services that can potentially be covered by medical insurance, including numerous procedures such as frenectomies, mucositis and pain conditions. Also covered will be the requirements for receiving reimbursement and a step-by-step guide for how to get started..
