Webinar: Learn how to get reimbursed for treating LTC patients
September 04, 2012
The number of older, disabled adults is projected to be 21 million in 2040. How will this shift in demographics affect the way you practice in the future? How will we ensure continuity of care for our patients who may need dental treatment in long-term care facilities? Oral care delivery systems that reach people where they live must be reimbursable and cost effective.
There is a mechanism available now that provides a way for dental professionals to be reimbursed for non-covered dental services provided to Medicaid recipients living in long-term care facilities. Incurred Medical Expense (IME) (PDF) regulations help long-term care residents get the dental treatment they need and help the dental practice get reimbursed for services.
To learn more about IME, join us for a webinar on Thursday, September 20 from 1-2 p.m. Eastern time. Register online now for the webinar, â€œHelping Nursing Home Residents Pay for Dental Care through Incurred Medical Expense (IME) Billing.â€
The webinar will discuss these questions:
- How does IME work?
- Is the IME billing process a â€œburdenâ€ or an â€œopportunityâ€ for dentists?
- How long does it typically take for the dentist to ultimately be paid?
- How can the billing workflow be optimized for the nursing facility and dental staff alike?
