humana dental plans for seniors the front desk so this is this is humana dental plans for seniors very important so one of the things that I had to do because I had to do it backwards .
- I took over from someone who was not sharing into the information and
- what didn’t seem to save any and the doctor just said I know we take Delta well you take Delta and then when .
- We checked eligibility we asked what network when they said yes you’re in network
- what network are we in so then when I got the names of those networks and
- I started putting those things together also on the EO B’s I got the information because it .
Will tell you processed as part of whatever network then I realized then I could have a list and then I contacted them I got all the payers in their network I got the fee schedules then I started then we learned how to negotiate the fee schedules and found out.
Which insurance companies just aren’t negotiating it’s take-it-or-leave-it and and which ones we needed to to pay attention to this is not an easy thing if you don’t have I I’m partial to notebooks like a big binder full of contracts and
I think that’s an office manager thing all the best ones have binders yeah well they have files or binders or something like thatso if you don’t have the notebook you and you have to rebuild like.
I had to do as an office manager you get it through checking eligibility and you need to just kind of keep that list on the side and then contact those companies and get the information you were missing so that you have it all together then you can update your practice management software .
Then you can make sure that the patients are entered correctly and attached to the right fee schedules all of those types of things which you cannot do if you don’t know what the network is you don’t know what the fees are so if you have to do it backwards eligibility and.
a obese hopefully and there’s there’s contracts somewhere in the office yes and I cannot tell you an office that I’ve been in that they had the contracts right there I mean they might be at home or they might be in a box that the doctor had finds the office manager did it or or they did it so.
