Can Patients Choose Not to Use Their Dental Insurance?

If you are a network provider, you know that your provider agreements require you to file claims with the insurance carrier. I am not suggesting you breach these contracts; however, the patient is the higher authority. It is our obligation to let patients know what their payment options are.

Thanks to HIPAA/HITECH regulations you now have the ability to have a patient opt out of filing their health insurance.

Dr.Travis Campbell has a wealth of knowledge….highly recommend him to anyone looking for advice on practice management…..can’t wait to put my hands on the new book.

Viral Patel, DDS

As a new owner, I have had many questions in regards to managing a dental practice. Meeting Dr. Campbell has been very rewarding. He has helped guide me towards better managing my team and becoming a more profitable dental office. I appreciate both his knowledge and kindness in personally responding to my questions.

J. Chung, DDS

I have had the opportunity to discuss dentistry with Travis for a little over a year now. While many of us seek to improve our clinical skill sets, we often downplay the importance of understanding the non-clinical aspects of dentistry. Travis has a gift in being able to share with our community methods and approaches to practicing smarter, not harder, when it comes to blending these to sides of your practice to create growth as owners.

It is important for us as professionals of all practice styles and philosophies to have avenues to learn from which are professional, ethical, and balanced. We are fortunate as a profession to have Travis willing to share his time and his experience with us.
