Dental MBA Business Series: The Art of War - Reducing Time Spent on Insurance Administration Featuri

When:  Feb 19, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PT)
Associated with  Orange County Dental Society


The Art of War by General Sun Tzu is a must read for business and sports strategists. In learning how to better deal with insurance carriers, I have no doubt that the industry has engaged in the most impressive “war like” strategy against dental offices. This course will teach offices how they can employ some of the same tactics insurance carriers use against them in an effort to  reduce  insurance administration.

This course will cover the following objectives: 

  • The power of pre-authorizations
  • California law indicates insurance carriers cannot deny pre-authorized treatment
  • How to effectively appeal denied claims
  • Engaging the Insurance Commissioner in free legal advocacy against illegal insurance activity
  • Reviewing PPO contracts and negotiating fees
  • How each of the above activities contributes towards keeping insurance on their toes - abusing you less
