APEX Reimbursement Specialists has helped numerous dentists to make more money for procedures and services they are already performing, in addition to assisting dental practices with each step of the credentialing process. What can you expect from a partnership with APEX Reimbursement Specialists?
PPO Negotiation Services
Our PPO negotiation services help dentists make more money for procedures that they are already performing without increasing chair time. APEX will analyze current code usage and enter reimbursement fee negotiations with insurance companies on behalf of the practice. The initial negotiation process can take over 120 days, and it will need to be repeated every 18-22 months to ensure the best rates. There are no guarantees that any or every insurance network will be open to negotiation, but we are proud to say that our average client experiences an increase of 10%.
Coding & Compliance Review
A coding and compliance review involves a forensic examination of a dental practice, an audit of clinical protocols, a comprehensive written report including recommendations and a consultation to discuss the findings. This service provides dentists with a wealth of information on how they can improve their practice, but successful implementation is up to the dentists themselves. An annual coding and compliance review can also assess progress towards goals from a past review.
The APEX credentialing service takes the tremendous work that credentialing requires off of your plate. We have a streamlined onboarding process to enroll dental practices into networks, which takes lengthy phone calls with insurance agencies and paperwork away from practices and their office staff. We also provide our dentists with education on whether their fee schedules are consistent with market trends or below. Our credentialing services can take up to 120 days to complete.
