Coordination of Benefits (COB): Untangling the Mystery (Recorded Webinar)
Member Price: $0.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $69.00
Course Created on: 11/15/2021
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=612|89784
Description:

American Dental Association on-demand webinar
The information contained in this program was current as of October 2021 . 

Overview
Coordination of benefits (COB) is a common source of frustration for dental offices trying to submit claims when a patient presents with more than one dental plan. The plans will coordinate benefits to eliminate over payment or duplication of benefits. Coordination of benefits can be a stressful and time consuming process for the dental office.
The American Dental Association has recognized the need to educate dentists and dental offices on the administrative practices and policies of third party carriers including COB. With the dominance of preferred provider organization (PPO) plans in the market and since more and more families have more than one dental plan the need for dental offices to correctly coordinate benefits is of the utmost importance. It is vital that the ADA disseminate information and educate dental offices on how to understand and properly coordinate benefits. Offices that are fluent in coordinating benefits will minimize claim adjudication issues when a patient presents with more than one dental plan.
Dentists will gain a basic understanding of why plans must coordinate benefits and how this may affect front office staff. A Council on Dental Benefit Programs member will echo concerns of other dental offices that have had issues with coordinating benefits. Also, a large dental insurance carrier will explain how coordination is handled and what dental offices must do to properly submit claims requiring COB.

Presented by Dr. Gene Porcelli and Dr. Daniel Croley and the ADA Council on Dental Benefit Programs
