  • New Dental-to-Medical Cross-Coding and Billing Credential Program Launches Nationally

    Developed by Dental Medical Billing in Partnership with QPro, Program Offers Industry-Recognized Credentials to Qualified Professionals

    January 27, 2021 – SPANISH FORK, UT. Innoventrum, developers of QPro products and services, in partnership with Dental Medical Billing, is proud to announce the launch of its premier credentialing program for dental-to-medical cross-coding and billing. QPro is a leading product solution-suite of medical training and certification for qualified medical professionals. Dental Medical Billing offers a rigorous academic program with a 40-year history of excellence in medical studies.

    “Working with Dental Medical Billing to bring this standard-setting, coding and billing credentialing program to dentistry is extremely exciting and very timely,” said LaMont Leavitt, CEO of Innoventrum, parent company of QPro. “The convergence of dental and medical insurance plans continues to accelerate and so will the need to have trained and qualified coding and billing professionals in dental practices.”

    The credentialing exams are hosted and administered by QPro.com. To earn dental-to-medical billing credentials, candidates must pass at least three exams including the requisite Qualified Medical Coder/Biller Exam. From there, candidates can earn designations in nine specializations, such as dental implant coding, oral surgery, sleep apnea, sedation dentistry, and coding and reimbursement for CBCT scans.

    “Medical coders and their prospective employers have recognized and valued post-secondary certification for decades,” said Christine Taxin, Operator and CEO of Dental Medical Billing. “I’ve trained thousands of dental teams to do dental-to-medical cross-coding. It is gratifying to finally bring this type of program and standards to the dental industry.” “Employing trained credentialed coders is a win-win for practice owners that need to minimize compliance risk and maximize reimbursements,” Leavitt added. “It’s a win for the billing staff in that it validates their expertise, while opening career doors. Most importantly, it’s also a win for patients who will get increased services because their dental office knows how to maximize patient insurance benefits.”

    While not a formal educational requirement, most healthcare providers in the medical arena will only consider candidates that can show they have knowledge and training in the highly specialized field of medical insurance coding and billing.

  • 2020 Healthcare Administration Alliance Evaluation and Management (E/M) Conference Sessions Now Available for Purchase

    Ideal Opportunity for Medical Coders, Auditors, Managers, and Providers to Review Acclaimed Workshops Focused on Significant E/M Changes Affecting Reimbursement in 2021 and Beyond

    November 05, 2020 – SPANISH FORK, UT. The Healthcare Administration Alliance (HAA) today announced that the organization will make available all sessions from its 2020 Evaluation and Management Conference for purchase. Designed to prepare coding professionals for the longanticipated 2021 E/M coding revisions, the conference provided three full days of E/M-specific panels and presentations from industry experts whose specializations include healthcare law, medical practice leadership, coding and auditing, and education. The entire workshop is now available for purchase in its entirety or by individual session.

    “The Evaluation and Management codes and guidelines will soon undergo very significant updates – those who depend on E/M accuracy in their professions are quickly running out of time to prepare,” said LaMont Leavitt, Executive Director of HAA. Dave Berky, Director of Technology with HAA added: “Precise documentation and coding of E/M services are essential to providing patients with quality care, and providers with maximum and timely payment. Anyone who is an E/M professional will find our symposium content to be of tremendous professional value for both immediate learning and longer-term reference.”

    After almost 30 years of the same E/M codes and coding guidelines, the most reported subset of evaluation and management codes have finally been revised to bring E/M coding into the 21st century. The original codes and guidelines were published when the DOS (Disk Operating System) was the most prevalent computer system. Today, providers, with iPads and tablets in hand, are caring for patients in a high-tech environment while being governed by decades-old documentation and coding guidelines.

    In 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced adoption of the E/M code changes published by the American Medical Association (AMA) in the Current Procedural Terminology® (CPT) codebook. These changes are specific to Office or Other Outpatient E/M services. Changes made to this subsection of E/M coding will significantly impact provider reimbursement as well as the auditing process for years to come.
