2020 Dental Customized Fee Analyzer Data File (One Specialty)
Optum360 | 2020 |
Dental Customized Fee Analyzer provides dentists and oral surgeons with a customized report for their specific geographic area and the CPT® and CDT codes most frequently used in a dental and/or OMS practice. Under-priced fees can cost a practice thousands of dollars each year. To set the most appropriate fees, you need specific information for your geographic locality, as fees vary widely across the country. Relying on national averages can result in reimbursement that is too low or billable charges that are too high. This resource will provide defensible data when revising your fee schedule, negotiating contracts, and conducting competitive analysis.
- Seven reference points of charge data (50th, 60th, 75th, 80th, 85th, 90th and 95th). Perform competitive analyses with confidence and help make more accurate adjustments of charges.
- Real-life claims from the FAIR Health database of over 1.5 billion charge records. Develop and help maintain competitive fees while having defensible data during contract negotiations.
- Follow-up days listed by procedure. Quickly identify the number of days a physician is responsible for services under a CPT® code.
- Professional (PC) and technical (TC) component splits of global services for all CPT® codes. Estimate allocation and reimbursement for the physician and technical portion of a specific service.
- Printed book or data file. Choose from two format options.
