Coastal Cosmetic + Implant Dentistry is uniquely capable of addressing complex dental health problems that also impact your overall health and wellness. Our dental care team has the expertise and experience to work with patients suffering from the advanced effects of tooth loss, bite problems, and sleep apnea. Dr. Mark Reichley and Dr. Cappy Sinclair can restore your smile, oral health, and quality of life with cutting-edge dental treatments and technology. We are also one of few area dental practices authorized to file for coverage through your medical insurance when treating specific dental problems, more explicitly rehabilitating your oral health.
Medical billing for dental care may also be accessed when providing correlating treatment for oral health issues caused by disease or illness. This can include oral cancer, the effects of diabetes on the gums, and genetic conditions affecting oral structure. If you require dental care as a result of a related condition that has affected the health and function of your smile, we can offer comprehensive treatment that may ultimately be covered by health insurance.
What Is Medical Billing for Dentistry?
Medical billing for dentistry means accessing your healthcare benefits for specific treatments related to your overall physical health and wellness. When using medical billing, patients can often access better coverage and the benefit of dental care going toward an annual healthcare policy deductible. There are currently only specific dental procedures and treatments that may qualify for medical billing:
- Full Mouth Dental Implants
- Sleep Apnea Oral Appliances
- TMJ Appliances and Therapy
Medical billing for dental care is an evolving practice as scientific studies continue to prove the importance of oral health for overall wellness. Using your healthcare benefits can enable you to save money while receiving the care you need for oral health-related concerns impacting your quality of life.
How Does Medical Billing Work?
The first step is a consultation to evaluate your needs and discuss your medical history. With a treatment plan in place, we can work with your health insurance to obtain a pre-authorization for your dental care. Once your treatments are pre-authorized, we can begin to schedule your visits. We will subsequently bill your health insurance for pre-approved treatments and will provide an estimate of any costs you will need to cover out of pocket.
