Medical billing is crucial in dental practice as it helps in identifying medical necessity for treatment. In fact, 90% of patients who visit a dental practice have some form of medical necessity. Medical necessity refers to the medical history of the patient and the corresponding medical diagnosis. As a dental provider, it’s important to ask for this information and determine if there’s enough medical necessity to proceed with treatment. This information is then used to establish medical necessity by using diagnosis codes on the medical claim form (CMS1500). The diagnosis codes can be obtained from various sources such as chart notes, sleep tests read by an MD, patient medical history forms, and patient questionnaires. By properly documenting and billing for medical necessity, dental practices can increase their revenue and provide more comprehensive care to their patients.
