As a dental practice leader who knows process automation and data security, you’ve taken needed steps to implement secure electronic claims and attachment process.
But how can you be sure the claims documentation you submit makes its way to the health plan? Or to the payer in a likewise secure fashion?
According to dental practice consultant Teresa Duncan, MS, FADIA, FAADOM, founder of Odyssey Management, “Everyone assumes all clearinghouses have direct (electronic) lines to all payers and that’s not true.”
Not every clearinghouse has the needed electronic connection to payers. So they must drop claims and attachments to paper, pack them up, and send them via carrier to the payer. According to Duncan.
Practices should do their own due diligence and ask clearinghouses if they electronically connect to their payer’s claim and attachment repositories.
If a vendor doesn’t have capable resources to adequately submit most or all claims and attachments electronically from a claims attachment solutions like
If you experience each or all of these regularly, there’s a good chance your clearinghouse is dropping your claims and attachments to paper. There is little reason that you shouldn’t be able to submit 100 percent of your claims and attachments electronically.
