Topic: The Art of PPO Negotiation
Are dentists aware that they can negotiate their fees with insurance?
What financial impact does fee negotiations have on any given dental practice?
Is this something doctors can do on their own successfully?
Do all insurance carriers negotiate?
Speaker: Benjamin Tuinei, President, Veritas Dental Resources
Mr. Tuinei began his dental career in 2007 while working for a small dental corporation in Phoenix Arizona managing all insurance related functions. During his first few months, he created systems and operating protocols and restructured a 12 person billing department that improved collections from a low 65% to 98%. At the same time, Mr. Tuinei learned how to effectively negotiate with 3rd party payors that gave a boost in annual insurance related revenue of nearly 1 million dollars for a team of only 10 general dentists. Mr. Tuinei’s early experience in negotiating with 3rd party payors caught the attention of other large group practices and hundreds of solo dental practitioners in Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Idaho and Colorado. Consequently, he unintentionally discovered an under-served section of the dental industry: 3rd party payor negotiating (aka insurance fee negotiating). Mr. Tuinei opened Optimum Dental Solutions in September 2009 to serve the needs of dentists who were actively seeking assistance in improving their insurance reimbursements. On May 1, 2015 Veritas Dental Resources purchased Optimum Dental Solutions. Mr. Tuinei currently serves as a managing partner and President of Veritas Dental Resources.
