Dental carriers are starting to deny coverage for treatment considered a medical necessity! Dental offices are just charging the patient for those services or patients are refusing the treatment. Have you considered why that service should be full fee for the patient when they have coverage under their medical insurance? Dental offices who have NEVER had to consider billing medical insurance are faced with the prospect of either being able to bill medical (correctly) or telling their patients that they will not assist them in getting the benefits, and possibly care, they deserve. 

Have you received dental insurance EOBS that say you need to bill medical for services that you have always billed to them? Well, regulations and policies that you must follow to ensure correct billing and protect your practice have changed. Do not forget the dental world can change the contracts you have had and never really ask you to read them. Of course, the choice is yours, but will you be able to keep your patients happy when less treatments are covered under their dental plan?
