The Changing Dental Landscape

There is no doubt that the dental care sector is a changing one. The spending habits of patients have changed, major dental insurance payers have continued to cut reimbursements by as much as 15 percent in states coast to coast in a trend that is expected to continue. DSOs, however, have emerged have emerged as a leading part of the sector’s continued innovation while adding to the competitive health of the dental landscape.

NEA, because of our intimate knowledge of dentistry technology and the sector, is acutely aware that we’re seeing major changes afoot, especially in regard to DSOs and how they are impacting and benefiting dental outcomes and care. We are proud of our association and partnership with the DSOs we support and look forward to building more connections within the community at the 2017 ADSO.

FastAttach for DSOs

For more than 20 years, NEA has been serving the industry providing its secure, electronic claim attachment solution, FastAttach, to more than 50,000 dental health professionals, a great many of them from DSO organizations. All of these organizations enjoy 100 percent electronic connectivity to more than 750 dental payers and health plans; that means that no documentation is ever dropped to paper – saving  time and money.

FastAttach, a secure solution that meets HIPAA and HCFA security requirements, enables dental practices to electronically transmit X-rays, perio charts, EOBs, narratives, pre-treatment estimates, secondary claims or any other documentation required by a payer to adjudicate a dental claim. DSOs with multiple practice locations use FastAttach to eliminate lost or damaged claim attachments; improve the revenue cycle and expedites reimbursements; saves on postage and printing costs; and reduces follow-up time with payers.

NEA has a strong role to play in the continuing evolution of the DSO sector. As technology continues to play an increasingly important role in dental care at the point of patient care and in administrative roles, and as DSOs grow, the use of new solutions to manage claims, claims attachments, supporting documentation, patient interaction and health and scheduling will increase respectively. Also, insurance is accelerating the changing landscape.
