Encino, CA (PressExposure) June 06, 2011 -- Warschaw Learning Institute, the industry leader in online training for dental professionals, and military spouses offers a dynamic new Dental Insurance course for dentists, dental managers and their teams as well as individuals just entering the dental field. This easy to understand course guides the student through types of insurance policies, communicating with patients, estimating coverage, treatment planning, coding, financial policies and more.
The goal of this course is to help team members implement an office-wide protocol for educating patients on their dental insurance coverage, resulting in higher case acceptance. Protocols and guidelines are set forth to help the practice implement financial policies to new and existing patients, and streamline their current insurance claim process. The course also helps show how to manage your claims through regulations governed by the American Dental Association to gain optimum coverage from dental insurance companies.
As health care professionals, it is important to understand the ins and outs of the Dental Insurance industry, our responsibilities as providers, and our patient's duties as well. This course will teach students (Dental Financial Coordinators, Dental Managers, Dental Insurance Coordinators and Dental Front Office Teams), efficient claim filing methods and presentation of treatment plans, as well as key words to use (and not use) to improve patient compliance.
By being able to present treatment cases and insurance benefits more effectively, the office can increase revenue while keeping collections to a minimum. Communicating to your patients that you are helping them get the most out of their insurance coverage will earn their respect and their referrals.
Cathy Warschaw, Director of the Warschaw Learning Institute has a goal for every student to excel in his or her profession with the help of WLI courses. "Our goal is to be there for you not only during your learning experience but afterwards" she says, "Because your success is our success!"
The course instructor is Anthony Warkins. Warkins is currently employed by one of the top dental insurance companies in the country. He has long felt that there is a tremendous disconnect between providers and insurance companies, and he is determined to bridge that communication gap. With over 10 years in the dental insurance field he will train you to look at your patient's insurance claims from the viewpoint of an insurance adjustor. This will increase the efficiency of your claim submissions and enable you to understand what an insurance company is really looking for in your claims.
Insurance has changed the face of healthcare and our dental offices wouldn't be what they are today without it. Many patients may not even receive comprehensive dental treatment at all if it weren't for the fact that they have coverage through a 3rd party insurance agency.
