Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is an exchange of all types of data between a provider’s practice and Dental Select. By submitting your claims electronically, your practice will see a considerably shortened turnaround time for claim payments and a remarkable reduction in postage and labor costs.
EDI will speed up your revenue cycle and increase your office’s efficiency. How? It’s simple. EDI is a standardized system that transmits claims and claims information electronically. It eliminates the need for paper-based dental claims because it processes everything, including attachments, instantly and electronically. And because it uses a secure, cloud-based solution, your office can send and receive electronic documents in minutes instead of days. As for your reimbursements, they can take as little as 7-15 days. Combine this with the low costs associated with EDI, and your practice will save even more when switching to electronic claims processing.
Practice management software vendors and claims clearing houses provide tools that create files using data from your billing system.
Payers are able to receive files via their network. Their network can be used to transmit files to payers and partners. Connected vendor clearinghouses also offer access to national payers.
Payers, clearinghouses, and practice management vendors provide various reports that allow you to track the transmission of your electronic files.
