Dental RCM services enable dental businesses to improve their financial health, and empower them to thrive.

When your dental business’ revenue is strong, your team is able to take steps to increase patient satisfaction. And with dental RCM services, you have the support to easily improve their experience and attract more patients. 

Here are 3 ways dental RCM services elevate the financial health of your dental practice or group. 

1. Faster payments from patients and insurance

Dental teams often miss out on revenue due to inaccurate or out-of-date patient data that is on an insurance claim form. Dental RCM services provide expertise to verify that your patient’s insurance data and claim forms are accurate. 

When claims are denied, and you have to begin the appeal process. This time and money costs your dental practice or group. When you face fewer insurance denials, your business is paid faster. 

Patient collections are another revenue stream that flows stronger and faster with dental RCM services. DCS, for example, offers automated patient billing services that speed up your patient payment process with AI-assisted technology. It makes the payment process easier for patients, too.

With a full-service RCM partner, like DCS, dental businesses receive revenue cycle management expertise for the following processes: 

  • Insurance verification: Clean patient data is like clean foods, supporting smooth cash flow and financial health.
  • Claims management (submission, appeals, aging reports): RCM experts supply the brainpower behind strong insurance revenue collection, and can access their teammates for even more brainpower to get your claims paid.
  • Patient billing: Extend the friendly hand of customer care through easy payment collection. Your revenue and your patients will both appreciate the simplicity and accuracy of an automated patient billing system.

2. Enhanced operational efficiency

Your dental business’s operations are like your body’s immune system. When it's well-organized and cared for, your health is in good shape. But when factors disrupt your nervous system, you get sick. It works similarly at a dental office or group. Instead of the disruptive factors being germs or diseases, it’s lack of time, expertise, and smooth-running systems. 

Dental RCM services ensure that your revenue flows easily from production to posted payments, without the delays and disruptions that come with “germs.”
