Dr. DiTolla’s Clinical Tips – Practice Booster® Code Advisor

Practice Booster® Code Advisor
I am always surprised at how many calls we get at the lab from dentists and front office staff wanting to know what the best insurance code is for a restoration, especially for newer ones like BruxZir® Solid Zirconia or Lava™ Ultimate (3M™ ESPE™; St. Paul, Minn.). I quickly refer all of these calls to the man who knows more about insurance coding than anyone I know: Dr. Charles Blair. I purchased his Practice Booster® Code Advisor and have been thoroughly impressed by how easy he has made it to access so much information. Because it’s web-based, it is simple for the company to make updates that you can see instantly without having to perform a software update. A simple glance at Code D2950-Core Buildup shows why this program is so valuable. In addition to giving you warnings and cautions for when these services won’t be covered, it also includes sample narratives for how to get buildups approved when they are indicated. You really have to see it in action to appreciate how thorough it is. Visit the Practice Builder website to check it out, and stop leaving money on the table.
