Are there dental insurance programs that you can purchase to do dental insurance billing from home?

by Brittney

I was interested in starting up my own business from home with dental insurance billing. I am currently looking into how might I start this. I was wondering perhaps if you knew how I could start.


When I first got started, I purchased a Dental practice management software called PractiSoft - and I still have it. My intent was to offer Dental and Medical billing. But when I talked to others in billing they were having a hard time convincing Dentists to outsource their billing.

I just never pursued dental because I learned billing for other specialties and had my hands full with them.

For some reason Dentists seem to be more reluctant to give up their billing functions. I haven't done any dental billing but understand it has the added complexity of having to many times provide (or attach) patient treatment info such as x-rays in addition to the claims.

I think there's a great opportunity in dental billing - especially if you have some experience in dental. I understand many still submit paper claims.

Thanks for the question and good luck.

Dental Insurance Billing at home
by: Anonymous

I am also interested in dental billing from home. Like the other persons that are interested I have 20yrs experience in dental insurance billing. My experience in collections is remarkable to the point that the representatives at dental insurance companies know me by my first name. If there is a software that I can purchase I would appreciate the help. I also manage a dental office so I know what it takes to maintain insurance payments flowing. What advise can I get to start this process or if this process is possible.

I too am interested in starting my own Dental Billing Business from my home. I have 15 years experience in billing from a dental office, but would like to have more freedom and less contact with some of the eccentric Dentists. I have a fantastic collections record and know the Dentrix program (one of the more popular ones) inside and out. Any suggestions?
