It’s our favorite time of the year! CDA Presents Anaheim 2018 is just ten days away and we are counting down the days to see our old friend and make new ones.
This year, we are happy to announce that our booth will feature our PayConnect Financial Services. Our comprehensive suite of financial services enables your dental practice to easily collect payments, quickly determine in-house credit options and offers a host of other services to better manage your practice’s merchant account.
We are offering a FREE analysis of your current merchant account right at our booth. This cost savings analysis only takes a couple minutes and can be eye opening when it comes to how much your practice is really being charged for its merchant processing services. Plus, we’ll give you a Snapper plush toy and a Snapper Chomp for taking the time to do the analysis.
This year’s booth will be located at #701. Visitors will have the opportunity to view demos of all our products and discover our how much time and money they can save by switching from paper to EDI. When you sign up for one of our paid services at the convention, we’ll give you a 19” Disney character plush toy and you’ll be entered into a raffle for your chance to win a JBL Bluetooth Speaker! We will be giving away one speaker for each day of the show, three in total. So come by the booth to enter.
If you are a current client, come by our booth and we’ll enter you into the JBL raffle, as well. We’ll also give you a Happy Client Snapper pin to display how much you love our services.
We will feature some other cool giveaways like DentalXChange note pads, DentalXChange pens and DentalXChange key chains. So if you are coming to CDA Presents Anaheim, download the CDA app, find our booths, stop by and say hi.
Did you know that you can check the status of a claim right on your computer? This can eliminate the need for time-consuming phone calls and make claims processing easier and faster for dental offices.
“ClaimConnect will help you eliminate the need to call your payer to find out about your claim status,” said Lindsey Schurman, Client Services Manager at DentalXChange, the makers of ClaimConnect. “It is an easy process that will help ease administrative duties for your practice and help save you money.”
To check a claim through ClaimConnect:
- Select Claim Status on your ClaimConnect Dashboard.
- Enter the payer, provider, subscriber, patient and claim information, as necessary.
- Click Continue to view the status of your claim.
“Calling your payer can lead to wasted time and money,” said Schurman. “If you would like to learn more about how to check claims statuses online, please call us at 800-576-6412 ext. 452. We will be happy to help.”
In today’s economic climate, the need for dental practices to extend credit to prospective patients is a necessity. With the rising cost of healthcare across the board, most patients just cannot afford to pay for their treatment in one lump sum. So they will look for a dental practice that will extend them credit to pay over time.
Unfortunately, according to a report from the Corporation for Enterprise Development, “56% of consumers have subprime credit scores. Meaning they are unable to take advantage of the best, or even average interest rates if they need to borrow money.” So where does that leave your practice? Do you blindly extend credit on faith, hoping you’ll eventually see your return?
The good news is you don’t have to with our new Patient Credit Score Services.
This innovative service provides you and your staff with the financial data needed for making in-house credit decisions. Powered by TransUnion, you’ll get a synthesized report featuring a FICO score and the healthcare-specific metrics you need to get a more complete picture of your patient’s financial situation, right at the point of service.
Here are the great ways this service is designed to help make better in-house decisions:
- Improve financial counseling with easy to read Decision Messages, which help staff with in-office credit determinations.
- Expedite the registration process and improve revenue recovery through self-reported data that is quickly verified.
- Reduce fraud and identity theft through five standard alert messages, including Red Flags.
- Review the patient’s available credit and TransUnion New Account score, which are compared against pre-set thresholds to help optimize your collections processes.
- Improve your charity care determination process and reduce bad debt by comparing the patient’s Federal Poverty Level (FPL) % estimate, which is compared against financial aid thresholds.
- Makes soft inquiry on a patient’s credit, which will not affect their credit score.
Patient Credit Score Services will help your practice make objective, ability-to-pay decisions and ultimately help you collect on services rendered.
Improve your financial counseling and collection with DentalXChange!
DentalXChange has announced a partnership with Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) to launch a co-branded online portal supporting electronic data interchange (EDI) for the dental community.
DentalXChange has designed and will operate the insurance company’s All Payer Dental Portal, allowing Humana’s dental providers to securely file insurance claims and conduct insurance-related transactions.
“Our goal in supporting Humana’s All Payer Portal is to improve utilization management and increase administratice efficiencies” Scott Wellwood
“Our goal in supporting Humana’s All Payer Portal is to improve utilization management and increase administrative efficiencies for providers,” explained Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange. “By increasing the speed at which providers of dental care can gather and utilize insurance information, we will be helping to improve the overall healthcare experience for patients, while accelerating revenue cycles for each of Humana’s dental providers.”
Through the portal, providers will have the opportunity to interact more directly with Humana, completing all dental EDI transactions at reduced or no cost. Features include the submission of claims and predeterminations, checking patient eligibility and benefits, obtaining the status of claims and receiving remittance information to balance claim payments. Transactions can be conducted directly on ClaimConnect or through integration with popular dental software programs.
“Humana is one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies,” Wellwood said. “We look forward to working with Humana to further streamline the company’s EDI processes and reduce costs for their providers.”
“DentalXChange’s EDI tools will help empower Humana’s dental providers with the ability to eliminate paper and manage their entire revenue cycle, from eligibility verification before a patient’s visit, through the receipt of the electronic remittance advice and payment,” he added.
