Free webinar: The growing impact of PPO leasing on your dental practice

Have you ever had a patient present with an insurance identification card for a plan the dental office thought it was not in-network with only to find out, after the explanation of benefits was received, that the office was indeed in-network with the plan? Can a dentist opt out of participating with a leased plan? What fees can be charged when you participate in a leased network? These concerns can be a stressful and sometimes costly process for a dental office.

In this webinar you will get the answers to these questions and more. You will gain a basic understanding of what PPO leasing is and how this may affect your practice. You will hear from a dentist who echoes concerns of other dental offices that have had issues with understanding PPO leasing.

  • Hi,

    Could you please explain what exactly PPO is?

    Thank you!

  • A preferred provider organization (PPO) plan is regular indemnity insurance combined with a network of dentists under contract to the dental plan to deliver specified services for set fees and according to the provisions of the contract. More information on the various types of dental plans can be found at http://www.ada.org/dentalbenefits

    In addition, according to the National Association of Dental Plans, 81% of commercial dental plans are PPOs which dominate the marketplace and almost 204,000 dentists participate in at least one PPO plan.
