Claim form rejected? Here is some insight into the newest 2019 ADA Dental Claim Form requirements.
Updated Version of the American Dental Association Claim Form
Is your dental practice aware of the new American Dental Association (ADA) dental claim form changes? The ADA has replaced the 2012 ADA Dental Claim Form with the revised 2019 ADA Dental Claim Form to incorporate the current version of the HIPPA standard (837D) electronic dental claim.
It is important to stay up to date on these changes because some insurance companies are starting to reject the 2012 ADA claim form in favor of the new 2019 claim form.
What changed on the form?
The 2019 changes affected 11 fields on the form. One of the biggest changes is the addition of the third gender identifier, “Unknown” to the “Male” and “Female” categories.
In compliance with these changes, DentiMax Practice Management has added this new claim form option, to help you avoid claim rejections, now available in version 20.
Is my software compliant with the new ADA 2019 changes?
DentiMax version 20 includes the new 2019 claim form. Make sure your practice is using this latest version because it will not be available in older versions of DentiMax due to the programming changes to the gender field.
