The Art of War by General Sun Tzu is a must read for business and sports strategists. Benjamin Tuinei is convinced the insurance carriers have engaged in this "war-like" strategy against dental offices. Learn how your office can employ some of the same tactics insurance carriers use against you in an effort to reduce insurance administration.

This course will cover the following objectives:

  • The power of pre-authorizations
  • California law indicates insurance carriers cannot deny pre-authorized treatment
  • How to effectively appeal denied claims
  • Engaging the Insurance Commissioner in free legal advocacy against illegal insurance activity
  • Reviewing PPO contracts and negotiating fees
  • How each of the above activities contributes towards keeping insurance on their toes - abusing you less

Third-party payor negotiating, more specifically dental insurance fee negotiations, is still a foreign concept to many dentists. Mr Tuinei has spent the last 10 years improving and perfecting this relatively new effort for over 5,000 dentist nationwide. He will be sharing a few secrets about how to effectively negotiate better fees with dental insurance companies in this exciting lecture. Mr. Tuinei is going on his 19th year as a professional public speaker. He is a PPO expert writer for Dental Economics and is featured on nearly all major dental podcasts worldwide. He is considered the authority on third-party payor negotiations by over 200 dental associations nationwide.
