Course Description

A new insurance course, to be held in-person at the Annual Meeting will discuss best practices for submitting insurance claims and proper coding by learning from a case study discussion of insurance claims, with insight from the AAP’s Insurance Consultant and Third Party Specialist, as well as representatives from insurance carriers.

Topics covered will include: soft tissue grafts, peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis, bone grafting around teeth and implants, and administrative issues.
