The Limoli Approach
Your four-part action plan to master the reimbursement process.
We’re Here to Stay…
For the better part of the last 40 years, Limoli & Associates has been focused on the most challenging issues concerning insurance reimbursement in the dental office.
All too often, challenges originally appear to be rooted in and by some form of an outside reimbursement complication. As most are well aware, the many facets of the dental market respond to both the economy and its reflective technologies. In the questionable uncertainty of this ever-changing political reality, let me share with you what I see, as well as the perspective of my clients and their immediate markets.
First off, the patient’s dental insurance (or, more accurately, benefit plan) is not going away. It will continue to change in both scope, as well as function – but it is not going away anytime soon.
How is it that now more than ever, both employer-sponsored as well as individual insurances seem to be dictating the patient’s course of treatment? If it’s not covered by the plan, the patient just doesn’t want to proceed. And to top it off, they are emotionally being driven to only seek needed, as well as elective, care from in-network providers.
This situation is not just happening in your office – it’s all over the country – and it’s not going to get better on its own. Don’t suffer in silence as your administrative costs continue to climb. Get the direction, assistance and resources on your side that has the proven history of mastering the overall reimbursement process.
I learned years ago that dentistry, as a profession, does not have insurance challenges – the problem is somewhere else and the symptoms of that greater problem show up in the insurance.
That is why the comprehensive Limoli Approach is a combination of products, reporting, and customized implementation based upon the specific unique circumstances – as no two situations or clients are exactly alike.
Remember, information without implementation does not apply itself to daily challenges. Without deliberate and intentional action, there is, and will be, no change. The problem persists and will again show up but with greater and often more labor intensive consequences.
This is a call to take action. Take a look at your practice, sit back for a moment and observe. If you have your answer and it’s not positive, or your gut is telling you something is off, then take the first step. I am here to help you.
I am most honored to share with you my continually updated experiences. Again, let me help you remove the politics of reimbursement and redirect your valuable efforts and focus back where they belong – taking care of the patients while making dentistry affordable for millions through education and information.
Part 1: Put and keep the patient’s insurance in its place.
Part 2: Charge a fee that is fair, balanced and consistent.
Part 3: Code “at the right time” for the correct completed procedure.
Part 4: Pull the clinical, administrative, and management teams together.
Now, let’s bring in all the pieces. Gather your questions, issues, challenges and frustrations so they can be answered and addressed individually and comprehensively. Something you just can’t get done in a room filled with 300 other people. I personally meet via phone or webinar weekly, monthly, or quarterly. In some cases, I meet daily with offices in crises, as well as developmental growth. Communication and action planning makes change grow into reality. Schedule your Individual Consultation time.
