What You Need To Know About Dental X-ray Attachments
This 50 minute recorded presentation has been created to help dental insurance billers understand x ray attachments. It has been specifically designed for people with little or no clinical experience to better recognize which x rays and other documents are necessary when submitting insurance claims.
Realize, it is not the biller's responsibility to interpret or diagnose the patient's x rays. It is however, their responsibility to pick the best image and supporting information that represents what is being billed to the insurance company. This presentation will give you the necessary understanding of this process.
