It’s the end of October, which means it’s the start of the holiday rush. Toward the end of the year, stores aren’t the only places that are busy. Dental practices can become bustling centers of activity from October through December because your patients are scrambling to fit in their second checkup and cleaning for the year or other treatment before their insurance coverage resets in January.
Although it’s always beneficial for your revenue to have a full schedule, the influx of insurance patients can make your staff’s workload much heavier than usual. As a result, you can struggle to get paid on time. That’s why you need to outsource dental verification with an experienced team. Keep reading to learn how Dental Support Specialties can help you and your team end the year on top.
Insurance Stress and Customer Service
Your front desk staff are your practice’s first line of contact. They answering phone calls and welcome patients to your office. Obviously, this position is critical to getting and retaining patients and your business’s revenue stream. But if your team is stretched too thin dealing with insurance issues, customer service can suffer.
Not only does your administrative team need to worry about serving patients in the office, but they also have to handle filing and verifying claims. This process can take hours between being on hold and talking with insurance companies—all for information on just one patient’s benefits. Needless to say, dental insurance verification can put a strain on your front desk team during a time when they should be cheerful and merry for those who visit your office.
Starting the New Year Off Right
Let’s be honest: most people want to leave 2020 in the dust and start 2021 with a clean, fresh slate.
