July webinar to help dentists decide if PPO participation makes financial sense

 News Webinar Icon

The ADA will stream a free webinar in July to help dentists determine whether participating in a preferred provider organization plan makes good business sense.

The one-hour Things to Consider When Deciding Whether to Join a PPO is scheduled for July 10 at noon and is worth one hour of continuing education credit.

The presenter is Tom Limoli, Jr., an expert on proper coding and administration of dental insurance benefit claims. He serves as president of Limoli and Associates/Atlanta Dental Consultants, Inc., a company that over the past quarter century has assisted dental offices in streamlining the insurance reimbursement process.

Mr. Limoli, Jr. will teach dentists on how to evaluate the financial implications of signing or not signing a PPO participating provider agreement. Topics for discussion include:

•    Reviewing current participating provider agreements.
•    The top common contractual clauses within third-party payer contracts and their potential financial implications on a dental practice.
•    Available ADA resources to help practices succeed.

Note: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, dentists may need to negotiate their fee schedules with payers. This negotiation should be done individually, between only them and their plan, and not with or on behalf of other dentists.
